{ippity} Challenge - Card for a Boy

     I was thrilled when I saw the challenge to make a card for a boy because I have boys and always make cards for them.  My boys are big Nintendo fans and even though they are older now and have outgrown all the cute Nintendo characters, they still like to play the games.  My youngest son just had a birthday and requested a Nintendo card, so I thought I'd make another one for this challenge using {ippity} stamps. 

The Nintendo character on this card is Kirby.  Kirby has his own yellow star that he rides on, hence I used stars for the balloons. The stamp I used for the banner is from the Life's Little Moments set.  After I stamped the sentiment, I used clear embossing powder to give it some shine.  Kirby himself is made out of circle and oval shapes.  The crown and stars are die cuts.  Kirby is the only Nintendo character I could figure out how to make besides the mushroom character, so it was a fun little card to make. 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
