It is little Friday y’all! Hope every one of you has amazing things going on.

This is the intro to the first throwback Thursday series. For this card I wanted to create a birthday card with an 80s twist.

**THIS CARD IS AVAILABLE ON THE ETSY SHOP

I’ll be totally honest, initially I had a hard time coming up with a good idea for this card. I first tried to make a card that looked like the Lite Brite (REMEMBER THOSE??!!) I might still try this for a future project. I thought about all the Saturday morning cartoons I used to watch and my comic book phase and this is what I came up with. I am pretty happy with how it turned out.

Other than it being an 80s themed card, I love that the amount of supplies needed for this are minimal. Although in all truthfulness this card was a lot of work as you can see in the video (available on YouTube)
