Mario birthday

The kids went to a birthday party last weekend where the theme was Mario Kart. Of course I had to make a Mario birthday card and party bag for the birthday boy!
I found a bunch of Mario images on the internet and printed them off onto glossy photo paper. For the gift bag, I just cut the images out and then layered them onto the bag. According to the kids, Yoshi (the green dinosaur creature) is the favourite so I used him for the card. I was thrilled to find a picture of Yoshi holding a crayon - a bit of Photoshopping allowed me to add the sentiment so that it looked like Yoshi was writing it himself. I used papers from Basic Grey for the backing and last week's sketch from Eat, Sleep, Stamp for the design.
