I just fell in love with this little face. Isn't he adorable?


I inked the image with black Memento ink and stamped onto white cs then clear embossed. I used copic markers to add some subtle shading to the image, but keeping it pretty clean. A little yellow added to the center of the flowers was all that was needed. I then used that same yellow copic marker to color the background around the image and then cut/embossed with the spellbinders Lacey circle die. The black polka dot paper behind the main image is cut/embossed with the Spellbinders beaded circle and added to the dp card front. The corners were punched with a Martha Stewart punch and mounted onto black. The sentiment is stamped with black ink onto the yellow cardstock and punched out and added to the black which was punched with the ticket corner punch. A little knot of the yellow gingham ribbon from Mark's Finest Papers and - ta dah!
