Birthday Wishes!

Happy Wednesday!!!

Hiya! Today is Inspiration Wednesday over on the My Creative Time blog. I found this card a couple years ago on Flickr and marked it as a favorite. I've been wanting to make my own version and I finally got the around to it. I made my card a birthday card, like the inspiration card, but I was thinking that it would be a fun "thinking of you" card as well. Next time I will probably stamp the sentiment on the inside.
  I used a darning needle/piercer and punched a hole through the front of the card, on either side of the crayons. Then I threaded the darning needle with twine and pulled the it through each hole and tied it around the crayons. I found that the crayons were still a bit wobbly, especially the more it is handled, so I secured each crayon with a small glue dot on the back.
