Get your sunglasses on for this card. It is so bright and cheerful !!! The image is from Digital Delights. This little guy is so full of joy and happiness you can't help but smile when you look at his face. It's as though he is saying "Hi" or that he wants to celebrate with you. It is such a versatile image it can be used for many occasions.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Stamp with Fun - Use shapes or punches - I used MS punch

Creative Inspirations - Something old, something new - The image is new and the paper and ribbon are old.

Digital Tuesday - Easy as 1-2-3 - Use 3 embellishments - I used ribbon, charm, and buttons

Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Use dies or punches - I used MS punch

Our Creative Corner - Triple Play - Use 3 embellishments from a list. I used ribbon, charm, and buttons.

Simon Says Challenge - Use summer fruits or summer fruit colors - I have all the colors on this card

There are ten layers on the front of this card. The image cut out two times and popped up, and the face was popped up a third time. The image was colored with Copics and I used waxy flax in the buttons. The grass is glossed with Crystal Effects. Of course, I had to add some stickles.

I tried to capture the many layers.

I liked the happiness on this little guy's face so much I used him on the inside as well.

The paper is K & Company backed with SU cardstock. I used MS punch and machine stitching.

Thank you for looking at my card.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. Your comments give me inspiration and keep me motivated.
