This little guy is just the cutest! I colored around him in a few layers of BG10 for the sky and I really think it adds to the whole look of the image.
I have no idea where the gorgeous ribbon came from as it was in a selection I won a while ago but it was the perfect touch to this card.
The wonderful deep border punch make a lovely finish with brown brads to compliment the wooden buttons.
I hope you like this one and will come along and play with us this week at Crafty Sentiments
