A Happy (Birthday) Boy

This is the card I made for my grandson.  It reminds me of him - he has such skinny arms and legs!  It is hard for me to get skin colors (any skin colors) to look natural when I color them with pencils so paper piecing is a good choice.  And yes, there are many skin colors in our family!   Besides I love to paper piece.
And here is the happy boy on his birthday yesterday:
