We adore this birthday card from Arlene. Perfect for your all star! The colors are so great and her layering is fantastic!

“I created this darling birthday card for my nephew’s 1 birthday. The colors, patterns and masculine design of Good Ol’ Sport were the perfect fit for this little boy card! The coordinating stickers made it a snap to customize the card with Edward’s name. Don't forget to finish off the inside of your card to complete the look.”~Arlene
