Lego Ninjago Party Invite

Our little guy's 6th birthday is in a couple of weeks.
He wanted a Lego Ninjago themed cake so I use that for his party invitation.

Lego Ninjago Party Invite

The Ninja was copied from one of the Lego instruction manuals and printed on lightweight card stock for the printer. I popped him with dimensional foam.
The Lego "brick" was handmade with a hand punch.  
There's two layers of dots on there.
It was so painstaking to layer so I stopped at two layers.
I put a coat of Glossy Accents on the brick to make it more realistic. 
Hard to see that in photo.

Used a couple challenge prompts to make a card this weekend.
Design from CAS(E) this sketch, colors from the 10 minute craft dash 
and papers inspired by BG challenge. 


This card took 10:18. I went over b/c I cut the arrow in a blue paper first and it didn't pop enough so I re-cut in the dark pink BG paper from the pad. Definitely a good move.

Card features a Purple Onion thank you stamp (Thanks AMY) and 
papers by Basic Grey and MME.


Stamp: Purple Onion
Ink:  Distress in Broken China
Papers:  Basic Grey "Kissing Booth" and MME
Other:  arrow die "Lead the Way" set by MFT

I miss my toys!!

The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp's "You" set.
