QKR Stampede Challenge #245

Here we are the LAST Friday in May, Memorial Day Weekend, and time for a new challenge at QKR Stampede!  Our optional twist this week is "Birthday Cards".  I chose Old Goat and inside verse is Ain't No Kid...I plan to make 2 more of these and will give them to my brothers and brother in law for their birthdays!  I colored him with copics, cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched square die, fussy cut his hat from burlap looking paper, glossy accents on their eyes and shirt button, and button brads from my stash for the buttons on his suspenders.  I opened the image in Microsoft Word and lightened it so I could print the verse over it.  The layout is for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps May Sketch.  The clouds are dies by Impression Obsession, grass die by Lawn Fawn, fence and sun ray SVG file by Birds Cards in her freebie section.  I stamped the fence with Stampabilities woodgrain background stamp in walnut stain distress ink.   All papers from my stash!

Stop by QKR Stampede's challenge blog to see what my DT sisters have made for your inspiration and join our fabulous challenge!  The prize for winning is 2 digital images of your choice, but if you use a QKR image you will win 3 digital images of your choice!  Hope to see you there!
