Hey Sunshine

Today is my turn for posting over at Quixotic Paperie. :) You guys know I've recently renewed my love for The Greeting Farm stamps.. so naturally I had to go with another one of these guys for my creation today. Many of these stamps are on sale at the moment, so head on over to the shop later and check them out here.

I used a really versatile stamp today, Wild Sprout Ryan.. how awesome is he?! I know a lot of you struggle with boy cards, and this guy can make life so much easier!! :) I coloured him with the usual markers and fussy cut him out then adhered him to the card using dimensionals.

I've followed Sketch #3 on this card. You have until 13th February to get your entry in!! I have used a few slices of paper from Pink Paislee - Old School paper pad. Lush colours, again.. perfect for boy cards.

I decided to make this a birthday card, as you can never have too many on hand. So out come the Whimsy Treasured Moments Ticket sentiments set, along with the coordinating die.

To finish off this very minamalist (for me) card, I added a couple of buttons and brads and a neat little chipboard gear from MiC!! Perfecto. :) Oh, and if you're wondering what the poorly stamped ticket edges are doing.. I kinda had a happy accident.. I dropped my inked stamp on the edge of my patterned paper.. so I just went along with it and done a few more. Result. :)

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
× Craft Cardmakers - No Floral Embellishments 

Big squeezes.
