Believe!

Ok, another masculine card, but for the younger generation this time.  I used one of the boy images from The Greeting Farm called "My Guy Ian".  And I am going to enter this into the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge whose theme this week is "For a Child".  If I had a son, I would love to send him this encouraging card.

Paper: Hero Arts notecard; Neenah Solar White
Ink: Copic Markers; CTMH Dye ink; Memento Tuxedo Black; Memento Brown ink
Stamps: The Greeting Farm; Unity; Lawn Fawn
Other: PTI Edgers Die #1

I first used the Teeny Tiny Backdrop  stamp from Lawn Fawn to stamp the notecard.  I used the PTI dye to create the edge on the white cardstock before stamping it with the butterfly from a Unity KOM set.  I stamped and coloured the boy seperately and then cut him out and adhered him to the white cardstock.  I finally added the sentiment in brown ink.

I love that sentiment, it really goes hand in hand with the title of my blog, it's about believing in infinite-possibilities! Wishing you an awesomely great day!
