"7" Badge

Wow! I am having the hardest time wrapping my brain around the fact that tomorrow, this little guy will be SEVEN!!!
 Ty has charmed our hearts & lives! He is such a sweet & caring boy, but also has a wild streak. He is a bear in the mornings & when he gets mad, watch out! He is sensitive & creative & I love him with all of my heart!!

I made him this birthday badge to wear on his special day. It features Lovebug Creations' rumple ribbon in Simply Red & Simply White, both from the "Star Spangled" collection. 

I started with the large chipboard circle & sprayed it with Glimmer Mist in "Jack Frost".
I then made the rosette from a scrap piece of Crate Paper that was cut to 10" by 1".
On top of that is another, smaller chip circle, also misted with "Jack Frost". On the back of this circle is where I adhered my ribbons.
To that, I added the popped up star. This was punched from a piece of the sheet music paper from October Afternoon's "Silent Night" collection.
I then adhered the "7", which is a vinyl Thicker from American Crafts.

I hope he gets some enjoyment from this badge. He can be a bit finicky!!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a great Wednesday!
