GI #3

So, after making two teen girl cards, I thought I try a little boy card. Once the pings hit, the card came together pretty easily. This will be my third and final entry into the Paper Crafts 2013 Gallery Idol.  Most of this card used stickers. There was some paper cutting and the use of only one stamp. I happen to have a red headed grandson, so this might just be a perfect card for him. He's mighty cute!


The striped paper is OA, the orange is Cloud 9. The boy, comet, Saturn and gold star are from OA, and the glitter stickers are from Bo Bunny. PTI stamp and SU ink. I used some sharpies and colored some squeekquins just for fun. And that's it. Happy dances everyone!

Glad you got your other stuff done, Bev, and could settle back to important things like creating! This is so much fun ... kinda retro and sci-fi at the same time ... the squeekquins are a perfect touch in that celestial sky! Anita :)

Isn't it just great when the 'pings hit', some days they just feel like there is a very big delay between 'pings' for me lol. Love the retro feel of this fun card!

This looks like one of those cards from the 40s or 50s, pale colors and cute graphics.

Such a charming card - perfect for your red-headed grandson. The image mirrors photos of my husband when he was a 'little 'un,' as he, too, is a red-head (with a sprinkle of blondish-grey added for a measure of 'handsome and dashing'). Love your entries - and looking forward to seeing what you create in Round 2, because I firmly believe you'll be moving on!
