The Greeting Farm - Birthday Ian and I create a birthday card for a little boy.



Hi Guys! Another quick post to show you a card I made as a reward for getting through some studying today. I also have some exciting news, I was picked as the "Cream in the Coffee" again, last week for the Play Date Cafe with this card. I was also picked as one of the top three over at Anyone for Anya? with this Masculine Card. I always get a wonderful feeling being recognised for my cards :) Anyway, on to todays card
This is a Baja Breeze card base, which has been lightly sponged, then I have layered Pear Pizzazz card stock and some white cardstock. The squares were cut out of various scraps in my collection and glued down. The ribbon is one I bought a while ago, but don't remember where I got it from. I stamped the Birthday Ian in Staz On and coloured him with my Stampin' Write Markers (pic of colours below). I then fussy cut him out, and attached him using dimensionals. The sentiment is from Grunge Rock and the two is from Timeless Type. 
I am entering this into three challenges, the first is the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, which I'm just scraping in with. Next up is The Play Date Cafe colour challenge, which I felt leant itself to a card for a little boy... And, the TGF Farm Fresh Challenge, Anything Goes
Thanks for popping by! If you'd like any more info about my card, leave me a comment :)

Hi Jess, I can see why you get recognized for your cards. This is truly an adorable card with little Ian on it. I love the colors that you have put together for this and the fact that you are using Stampin Up markers to color your image is just awesome. I had these markers at one point, but I just couldn't get them to work like that for me so I switched over to Copics. lol.. You are very talented and I just wanted to say thank you for joining us over on the Farm Fresh Challenge blog for this week's anything goes.
Hugs, Lisa G
