Good morning! I unfortunately needed to make a card for my 10 year old nephew... not unfortunate that I had to make a card, but unfortunately the poor guy broke his leg! At least it isn't the beginning of summer holidays I guess! So anyway, he's going to be in a cast for about 6 weeks, and hopefully will not need surgery... so in the meantime I figured we would send him some love and cheer across the country! I hope he likes his card!
I turned to the sketch challenge at Stampin' Celebration and the colour challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments (first time for me over there!) for inspiration, and my card came together pretty easily.
Here it is!
Isn't he cute? Despite the fact he's obviously felt better!
I hope this card will cheer James up! Did you notice I drew little buttonholes on his vest buttons (Candy Dots-Subtles) and some stitching around the edges with my Early Espresso marker. I also stamped on textured cardstock for an imperfect look, after all James is feeling less than stellar!
Thanks for stopping by! Let me know what you think about my card. I love comments!
