Happy Birthday Little Rebel

Good evening.
In the midst of all the Christmas hype, spare a thought for those Christmas birthdays. I always feel sorry for those with birthdays in December and early January, they don't get a fair crack of the whip!
Anyway the new challenge at HLS Birthday gives you the chance to make something for those forgotten December birthdays or even one for your stash! Sadly this will be our last challenge for some time, but hope to see you back here soon.


I started off after I found this little chap half coloured in in my bits box and decided to give him some love. After finishing colouring him in, I fussy cut him and put him to one side whilst I made the card base. 

I found an old cream base card and trimmed it down to be square, then added the frame cut from kraft and a panel embossed with an old Sizzix EF. To brighten the frame up, I also added a thin circular frame in matching cream card. The embossed panel was added to my base, followed by the frame on pads then the Little Rebel. (Nellie Snellen). A LOTV sentiment was stamped in brown on cream and slipped under the cute little chap to complete. One card that went into my Grandson's birthday card stash.

So what will you make? As always we love to see what you make in our gallery. For more inspiration please check out the rest of the girls in the DT here.

No option for me but the colours are appropriate!

It's our Birthday, Happy 14th Birthday!


  1. First, I am sorry to hear that HLS is taking a long break. I certainly hope it returns as it's one of my favs for sure. As for your card...I think that image is darling and I think it's so cute that he is sporting an Indian headdress. As always you always com up with fun layouts as well. Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday and Happy Holidays.

  2. This is adorable and colored beautifully. Some little guy is going to love this card. Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday.

  3. Great card. Perfect for some little man.
