My nephew's 5th birthday party was yesterday and it was a Lego-themed party, so of course I set out to make up a Lego card to match! I have seen so many of these fun cards floating around all over the place, so I was excited to make one of my own. Although I tried to keep it fairly simple, I sponged the edges of each of the squares and circles and that was a wee bit tedious, but I like the affect it made. Unfortunately you can't see it very well in this picture, but the white background is embossed with circles using the Texturz Plate (click on the picture to view it larger).
To help me with some inspiration, I headed over to my girls to take a peek at what they had for the challenge this week and I was excited to see Lesley's Tic Tac Toe! I ended up going diagonal from top left to bottom right...circles, dry embossing, punches.

**Update! What a thrill to see that the lovely ladies at The Paper Players chose my Lego card as one of the Cut Above choices for the week!
And, I just have to leave you with a picture of my kiddos at the party. My sister-in-law did a great job with the decor and aren't these goody bags super cute?
