Cool Dude's 4th Birthday

I wanted to make a special 4th birthday card for my Grandnephew James whose party is this weekend.  I always try to use photo's of them on the cards I make.  James and his family recently went to Disney and his favorite character this trip was Tinkerbell.  They snapped a great photo of Tinkerbell kissing James on the cheek (they took another cute one showing the lipstick mark left on his face!)  So I decided to use this photo for his birthday card this year.
The Cool Dude is from Free Spirit Sentiments from Waltzingmouse, the green label stamp is from Center Style:Masculine from PTI.  The frame die around the photo is Center Style:Masculine Die set from PTI.
I die cut the photo using a Stitched Mat Rectangle die from Lil Inker Designs.  The 4 stamp is from Free Spirit Sentiments, the 'th' and Birthday are from Retro Style Birthday from PTI.  The little metal fairy charm is from Funkie Junkie Boutique
I always like to personalize their cards with their names -  this time I put it on the inside - using Tim Holtz Label Letters.  The Happy Birthday is from Free Spirit Sentiments from Waltzingmouse.
I'm linking James' birthday card to:
 Less Is More Challenge -  Use some Metal.
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
Happy Little Stamper - Die Cuts and Punches

I tried to return to work yesterday - but they sent me back home as I was still coughing - the NEVER ENDING bronchitis!!

Paper:  White, Simply Chartreuse - PTI
Ink:  Simply Chartreuse - PTI, Archival Jet Black 
Accessories:  Stitched Mat Rectangle die - Lil Inker Designs, Center Style: Masculine Dies - PTI, circle punch - SU, foam tape, photo.
