Ok, well actually no one is turning 5. At least no one I know, but I like the number 5, so here we go...lol. This card is for this week's MIM (Make it Monday) challenge over on Nichole Heady's blog. The challenge is to use distressing on our card.
Here is my fun little kiddie birthday card!
Isn't it so fun? I love the My Mind's Eye paper and the glittery 5. I used scortape on the red card stock and then diecut it with my Papertrey numbers die. Easy Peasy!

Ok, so back to crafting. Hope you liked my card and that you have a great week! Thank you for stopping in. Laters!
