Stampin' Up! Look Who's Turning paired with Fox and Friends for Kids Birthday!

I have made another card, after struggling with it most afternoon... I have had a tough time of card making recently, I know I am overthinking it, but I am bored with all my stamps and inks, and everything in my craft room is annoying me a bit... so, to produce anything that I'm slightly happy with to post here is a milestone!
The funny thing about this card... I don't even know any soon to be 4 year old girls.... I started out stamping the owl, giraffe (I <3 Giraffes) and turtle from Fox and Friends in Regal Rose, Rose Red and Pretty in Pink. I then mounted it on a slightly bigger piece of Rose Red. I stamped the Regal Red card with the number strip from Look Who's Turning in VersaMark and clear embossed it. I set that aside, remembered I had Pretty in Pink Grosgrain ribbon and a button, so pulled them out, wrapped it around the Rose Red and attached a tag from Tiny Tags, the four is from the 4 You sentiment, but I have only coloured the number in using my Stampin' Write Markers. I attached it using some Red and White Bakers twine, and stamped the Look Who's Turning sentiment in Black Staz On. 
I am entering this into the Paper Players colour challenge, which I have been fiddling around with all evening....
Thanks for dropping in!

Jess, I got a chuckle out of you making this card for nobody in particular. I do that, too. I made a retirement card a few weeks ago and don't know anyone lucky enough to retire yet. Lol! This is such a sweet card! I love the little tag accent and the twine tied in the button Too cute! Thanks so much for joining us at the Paper Players this week! :)

I get bored with my stamps too! It is always nice to break in new rubbah, gets me inspired. But I think you did a great job with the challenge Jess and have created an adorable card...add it to the stash!!
Thanks for joining us at the Paper Players.

Jess, I know exactly how you feel about getting bored. When that happens I find that doing a couple of challenges helps, even CASEing something - anything to just get me stamping again!
I am glad you did join us, this card is delightful. It's girly and fun without being overly feminine - which is a wondrous feat considering the color scheme! I think you did a terrific job.
So glad you joined the Paper Players this week.

p.s. Love your boys Toby and Tommy, too!
