365 Cards Day 108 & 2S4Y Sketch 28

I was excited to see the challenge at 365 Cards Day 108 - Oh Boy!: "let's see some cards that are all boy - make a masculine birthday card, but not for an adult." As a mom of a two-year-old boy, I appreciate cute little boy stuff. There's just not enough of it! I knew right away I wanted to use my favorite "little boy" patterned paper. I also used Laura's Sketch 28 from 2 Sketches 4 You:




I stamped the sentiment using words from 4 different stamps. I initially has a ribbon tied around the card, but it didn't look quite right. I decided to use a scrap piece of fabric instead (with some zig zag stitching), and I think the frayed edges fit with the rest of the card. It didn't turn out at all like what I had initially planned, but I love it! Thanks for looking!
