For my preview sample, I decided to go CAS (clean and simple) and stamp the image and sentiment in Stampin Up's Old Olive ink and put the card together with solid and retired patterned paper in the same shade to complete the look. Kid's birthday cards need to be quick and relatively simple (at least in my experience) because they probably won't make it too long before getting ripped up or lost. Horrors, I know - but true... Adorable images like this sock monkey are so cute that they can stand alone, without needing to be colored, I think. I added a little bow to dress him up a bit.
