How cute!

How gorgeous is this little guy? His name is Finn and he is a digi image from SJ's Little Musings, her illustrations are amazing. So much fun is captured in them. Sigh, I wish I could draw....

So, on to my card! Its a bit dotty (look hard - both patterned papers have spots and the white embossed label is also dotty) and well, green!



I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers #89 (see the piccy at the bottom of my post). At first I thought eek! I can't do that! So left it a couple of days and today I was all gung ho and this is what happened. The "hide & seek" sentiment is from a Kaisercraft clear stamp set called Kid's Zone which I stamped onto kraft c/s in Versamark and heat embossed with white powder - I haven't done that in a while and I was so nervous! I always seem to botch it so I tend to shy away.. and I confess, it took me a couple of attempts to get it right. All of the papers are Stampin Up. The little tree I cut on the Cricut (using the Zooballoo cartridge if you are interested) for another card yesterday which I didn't end up using and I saw it when I was putting this together and went "...yeeesssss... that could work!". Its always tricky working out what will go on a boys card. I figured one bow was ok - but don't push it.

I am also going to enter the card into the following challenges...

The Pink Elephant #54 - Ribbons
Cupcake Craft #78 - Keep it Simple
Cards for men #4 - GREEN
Charisma Cardz Challenges #6 - Think Male
