Happy Birthday Fixafella



Sorry, its been so long since my last post, but I'm finding as things get more hectic as work that I don't have as much time to post. Please forgive me. This card is for yesterday's Color Challenge and today's Sketch Challeng on SCS. This is a Kick Stand card which means that the front is a little shorter than the back and you place the main image so that it hangs off the front panel and is even with the back panel. I used Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi, Barely Banana and Whisper White cardstock. The Fixabella image is one that I received in an image PIF on SCS and I colored him using watercolor pencils and a blender pen. I place the image on a piece of Wild Wasabi that had been stamped with the Canvas background in the same color. Then I mounted it on a piece of Barely Banana with Stampin' Deminsionals and tied a piece of Blue Bayou DS Ribbon between the Wild Wasabi and Barely Banana Layer. I then mounted the image on Blue Bayou that had been stamped with the Sanded background in Blue Bayou. I decided to use this as a birthday card for my brother so I added the HB using the Short Order Alphabet in Blue Bayou and framed it with hodgepodge hardware. I also added a couple of stickers from the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin Kit, the small round green sticker on the front panel and a stiped green sticker on the inside but low enough that it shows when the card is shut.

Thanks for stopping by and looking and I hope to add more cards soon. Have a great night!
