Friday Sketchers Boy Card

Hi All!

Hope your weekend is off to a great start! We don't have much of anything planned, but that works for me. Some relaxing time is always a good thing.

This week Whimsy Stamps is sponsoring the challenge over on Friday Sketchers! It's a really fun and easy sketch too, one that I could see using again and again. Head over and check it out!

Here's the card I made using the sketch and my new re-sized Baseball Connor stamp! This one is much easier to fit on a regular sized card. I do love the ease of coloring on the larger version, but this one suits me better. We have each in stock now, but the larger size will be discontinued once we sell out!

For this card, I started with a base of Chocolate Chip cardstock and layered on some Blue Bayou and this fabulous textured designer paper. I used a piece of wide grosgrain ribbon as the next layer in the sketch. The ends have been cut like a flag and it's held on with 2 build-a-brads, which I made into baseballs. The image is mounted on more bayou and chocolate cardstock. I colored the image with Copics and highlighted with a white gel pen. And there you have it, a quick and easy layout for a fun all boy card!

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday! I hope you'll join me back here tomorrow morning at 9am for the start of our very first Whimsy Stamps Blog Hop! The design team and I will show you our Whimsy creations and there will be a chance at some goodies too!

Happy Stamping! :)
