Crafty Gals August Challenge!

Good Morning Friends,
Today I am brining you a challenge from a blogging group I am in over at SCS.  The Crafty Gals challenge hostess this month is Carolina.  Here is her challenge:

"Animal Birthdays"

Two of my son's are having birthdays this next months. Since we didn't do any b-day cards I challenge you all to do one using an animal character and four shapes of any sort somewhere in the card plus colours red and blue. Is this too much to ask???. Good luck.

Well, I had to look a little for a stamp, but I found this High Hopes stamp, Froggy Gift, and it fit the bill. The paper was an easy one for me.  I used Cosmo Cricket for the main background. The blue stripe across the page is by DCWV.  The image is colored up in copics and I used distress inks around the top edge.  For my 4 shapes, I have a square, rectangle, tag and spellbinders Labels 18.  Hopefully, those 4 shapes count.

Copics used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E13
Pants:  B91, B93, B95
Shirt:  R20, R22, R24
Hat:  YR20, YR21, YR23, YR24, R20, R22, R24
Sling:  E29, E30, E25
Frog, G20, G21, G24, W0, W1, G28, 0

The inside sentiment is by Inkadinkado and it is one of my favorites to use.  I thought it fit perfectly with a little boys card.

Great challenge Carolina!  Please stop by the other Crafty Gals blogs to see what they have created with this fun challenge!
