Celebrate the Occasion

This weeks Challenge from Celebrate the Occasion HERE sees me making a boys card from 'Shrinky Dinks'  I just love these - and whenever I have done them in my Children's groups at work the children are always fascinated by the potential of them to shrink from large to small.  This is a boys card I made (considering I have 4 girls we are very rarely invited to boys parties I don't think I did too bad!).  The digger was traced from a coloring book reduced and then drawn onto the shrinky dink paper in sections - then the different areas were attached by split pins and a background and sentiment voila! there you have it.  Thanks to Celebrate the Occasion for the opportunity to enter and thanks for looking have a great week crafting :)
