Birthday Boy Ian

I made this card earlier today for the TGF Speed challenge. Birthday Boy Ian is a freebie. So if you want to play with him, hop over to TGF! He will be gone soon!

I like this image a lot because he is pretty versatile. He is suitable for lots of occasions.

I color this cutie with Copic and Sakura glitter pen. I popped Ian up with sticky foams. I also popped the middle present two times and the bows once. I did a little paper piecing as well.

This card is for the following challenges:
1. Whimsy Stamps: I followed the sketch. I really like this one.
2. Paperplay: Dimension
3. Simon Says Stamp: Let's get distressing. Although you can't really tell much from the pictures, but I distressed the edges, just very subtle. I only want a touch of that on my cards sometimes.
4. DU2DS: Distressing
5. Stamp Something: Paper pieced



Card Details
Image: TGF's new digi image
Paper: DCWV patterned paper and cardstockm, scraps
Embellishments: ribbon
Tools/Others: Embossing folders, nesties, Copic, Sakura glitter pens
