SCIC#69 Sketch, HSS Color Challenge #166

Good morning!  I unfortunately needed to make a card for my 10 year old nephew... not unfortunate that I had to make a card, but unfortunately the poor guy broke his leg!  At least it isn't the beginning of summer holidays I guess!  So anyway, he's going to be in a cast for about 6 weeks, and hopefully will not need surgery... so in the meantime I figured we would send him some love and cheer across the country!  I hope he likes his card!

I turned to the sketch challenge at Stampin' Celebration and the colour challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments (first time for me over there!) for inspiration, and my card came together pretty easily.


Here it is!

Isn't he cute?  Despite the fact he's obviously felt better!

I hope this card will cheer James up!  Did you notice I drew little buttonholes on his vest buttons (Candy Dots-Subtles) and some stitching around the edges with my Early Espresso marker.  I also stamped on textured cardstock for an imperfect look, after all James is feeling less than stellar!

Thanks for stopping by!  Let me know what you think about my card.  I love comments!

Supplies used:

Paper:  Very Vanilla textured CS, Early Espresso CS, Eastern Elegance DSP, Gingham Garden DSP
Ink:  Early Espresso Classic Ink
Stamps:  Sassy Salutations
Other:  Linen Thread, Designer Naturals Buttons, Chalk Talk Framelits, Owl Builder Punch, Candy Dots, Early Espresso Marker

Where do I start... I LOVE THIS! It is such a clean and simple design and I am partial to that, ;-) I love the pop of yellow, happens to be my FAV color. Super cute and to incorporate BOTH the colors from HSS & the sketch from SCIC- great JOB on both fronts!!

This is just so sweet, you should have heard my "awwww". I have a friend with a little boy in need of a heart transplant, and I'll definitely CASE this card to send to him. Just a cute little card! Thanks for joining us at HSS! Erika
