Branden's Birthday

Today's card is for my nephew's birthday.  This adorable image is called "Hamlet Pigwit Cold Suds" and he lives at From The Heart Stamps!  The layout is for their i{heart} Sketch.  I colored him with copics, puff paint for the foam on the beer, and glossy accents on the beer mug, bottles, and ice cubes.  CS from Hobby Lobby and DP from The Paper Studio Basics pad.  Red candy dots I melted from perler beads and ribbon from my stash.
