Happy Birthday little champion!!

Good morning,
another day, another work; this time I made a combo between a card and a bookmark. A girl asked me these two coordinated creations for her son's birthday, this little boy plays basketball and he totally loves it (I'm an ex-player too, so I can understand his passion), so why don't create something about this sport?!? The little champion is going to celebrate his 8th year in this world, I think this is an important age, so we must celebrate it with joy and happiness; I decided to use the famous colours of basket: orange, black and brown, and seen that we are in Fall period, I was so ispiring from this colours! A lot of buttons and star complete the scene... for a brilliant and shining career in this sport!

un altro giorno, un altro lavoro; questa volta ho fatto una combo tra una card e un segnalibro. Una ragazza mi ha chiesto queste due creazioni coordinat per il compleanno di suo figlio, il piccolo gioca a basket e ne è totalmente innamorato (sono anche io una ex-giocatrice, quindi posso comprendere la sua passione), così perchè non creare qualcosa attorno a questo sport?!? Il piccolo campione dovrà festeggiare il suo ottavo anno in questo mondo, penso che questa sia un'età importante, quindi dobbiamo festeggiarla in grande, con gioia e felicità; ho decido di usare i famosi colori del basket: arancione, nero e marrone, e visto che siamo nel periodo autunnale, sono stata molto ispirata da questi colori!
Tanti bottoni e stelle completano il tutto... per una carriera brillante e splendente in questo sport!

For my english friend : the sentiment is in italian language,
traducing it's written "HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITTLE CHAMPION!"

stamps: The Greeting Farm "Dylan" from set "Roll Call"
details: for the card - Basic Grey buttons, Making Memories felt star, basket ball printed and cutted,
Cosmo Cricket chipboard arrow from the set "Joy Ride", stars punched, "8" number from American Craft "Delight" Foam Letter Sticker, sentiment by me, copics for colouring;
for the bookmark -
Basic Grey buttons, Making Memories felt star, basket ball printed and cutted, stars punched, "basket" word from American Craft "Delight" Foam Letter Sticker, copics for colouring
papers and cardstock: for the card - white cardstock behind, Making Memories black paper "Skeleton Toil and Trouble" for the base, My Mind's Eye "Spooked Orange Swirls", black and rust cardstock for stand out other colours;
for the bookmark - rust and black cardstock for the base, My Mind's Eye "Spooked Orange Swirls"
