A birthday boy

This is a birthday card for my card ministry at church. It's for a birthday boy:
The image is called "Ben" from Mo Manning's Digital Pencil. Scroll down on my page ( to find the relevant link.

I printed two copies of the image. The first image I colored all over and was cut out with a square Spellbinders die and the edges shaded with Antique Linen (TI). I then colored the water can and pot on the second image and cut it out. Note: The part of the handle between the boy's hands are on the back copy only. The rest of it was glued down to the back copy by the nozzle (?) and opening of the can. The bottom of it was lifted with pop dots. The whole of the little pot was adhered with a little pop dot.

Here's a close-up:
This picture also shows that I put Glossy Accents on the flower and the pot.

This card is entered into: (they're NEW!)
