Thomas Wizard

It's my lil man's birthday, 6 today! The boys and I are heading back to school, them to learn and me to work ;-) We've had a fab couple of weeks off and will have another week off in about 5 weeks so not long to go! Already got things planned for that week - 2 days in Manchester and to the Harry Potter Studios near Watford.

Anyway back to the crafting... this is the card I made for Thomas for his birthday. He loves Harry Potter and I went looking for images and found the most gorgeous set of cute wizards at Stamp Fairy, this chaps name is Tommy. I bought a few and have used 3 images and one sentiment on my card, the sentiment is actually a free download ;-) I glued 2 card blanks together to make a 3-sided zigzag card. Sorry about the poor photos, believe it or not it was incredibly sunny when I took these so they look a bit washed out...

 This is on the reverse on the middle section for our message...

Here is the card my son Jack made for his brother, he too liked Tommy the wizard. He coloured Tommy with Promarkers and chose his own colours, papers and die cut shapes. I think it looks great...

Images - Tommy Wizard from Stamp Fairy coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Sentiment - freebie from Stamp Fairy
Papers - Back to Basics Modern Christmas by Dovecraft (yep using up my Christmas paper!). The gingham paper on Jack's card is by Craft Creation
Buttons - stash
Other - Nestabilities circle, scallop circle & labels one dies, Quickutz star dies, brown chalk inkpad

I would like to enter my zigzag card into the following challenges:
