Here is a cute card for the House Mouse and Friends Challenge of Buttons, Bows, and Bling. They are celebrating their 100th Challenge so go check out how you can win some wonderful prizes. I also tried to meet some other challenges, including Mark’s Fine Papers with a challenge of Bright and Cheery/Pink, Yellow, and Green. I found this little guy and he reminded me of all the summer sports. Even though this card has pink on it, I still think it works pretty well for a young man. I used layers of yellow and green cardstock on a white card base and two different decorative papers. I wanted the center to look a bit like a ball diamond.
The image in the center is colored with Tombow markers and cut out with a square Spellbinders’ Nestie. For embellishment I added yellow jewels on the scallops of the green layer under the image. I ran green polka dot ribbon down the left side with a bow and layered buttons. There are more small buttons on the top and bottom of the card and two green brads in the corners on the right side. I also added a green metal star and a dragonfly that I colored with alcohol ink.
