Natural Boy

WooHoo, 2 challenges - 1 card; gotta love that! The layout comes from Sketch Challenge 222 over on SCS. I also found this new blog - Copic Creations' Challenge and decided to give it a shot. Some of you so sweetly left comments saying you noticed I used Copics on one of my Miss Anya cards the other day. Thank you! That was the first time I tried them out and I was happy that it turned out okay, LOL. I thought that this new challenge blog would be a great way for me to get some more practice in. I've been buying my Copics individually so I don't have many at the moment. In fact, I used all but 3 of the ones I have on this card! The stamp is called Natural Boy by Stampavie. Isn't he cute? After I colored him in, I cut out and raised the potted flower, the snail's shell and his shoes with dimensionals. I also went over a few things with Stardust Stickles. He looked like he was sitting there thinking of something so I added the sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Floral Frenzy set. Thanks for stopping by and happy April Fool's Day!
