Card- Swimming Trunks

Hey everyone! I wanted to post a quick card today. My son is going to a swimming/sleep over birthday party tomorrow night, so I wanted to make a card that looked like swimming trunks. The birthday boy was also on my sons baseball team and when we had the end of season swimming party he had on swimming trunks just like this! Perfect! :) I found a pair of trunks online and printed it out the size I needed, then traced around it and cut it out! I found a flower and used it to trace around too, I had to color it in with...are you ready? My kids markers! I seriously need some Copics, I tried using my blender pen, but the flowers turned out pink, they needed to be red, so the markers had to do! I did a little stitching on them and crisscrossed some ribbon, a bow just looked to girly! :) I should have punched the holes first, then stitched it, it's a little off at the top. Oh, well, he's 8, he don't care! :) (I really want to redo it though, but I'm not going to! :) ) I really love the Crop-O-Dile, but I really want the Big Bite, it can reach in places where the regular Crop-O-Dile can't! I had to use my Making Memories automatic setter, I think I messed that thing up, I guess I need to get online and look up some instructions on it! Anyway here's the card!

Here's the front.

Here's the back.

I stamped "Happy Birthday" in the inside.

This is just a cute card. The Crayola markers did just great. I just bought some Copic markers and it will take some practice to make them look okay. Hope your son has fun at the party.
