Time to Celebrate

I had to whip up a fun card for Asa. He is a little boy who "helps" watch our daughter. Izzy is really in love with him, so it makes her time there tons of fun.

I decided to combine some fun challenges. The first is from Stampin sisters in Christ. They had a challenge to make a card for a child and to encourage them. As I was thinking about what to do for Asa, I ran into this challenge from Stamp TV. It was to have some of your card outside the edges of the normal card. I can't even begin to tell you how uncomfortable this made me to even think about LOL! I then saw this video by Beate and new I could do it LOL! Right before I went up to create, I saw this new color combo from Color Throwdown and there we go.
Here is my card
Isn't this little guy stinking cute? Every time I see Melaine host a challenge, I can't wait to break out one of her cute little animals. I am addicted. I will take a picture of Izzy's Brithday card for Asa, she used some of Melanie's cute animals as well.

I combined these with some fun stamps from Papertrey Ink. I love the leaves and it worked so well for this card. I just thought about a little boy jumping in a big pile of leaves. What could be more fun than that LOL!

Okay I also am LOVING this card. I have seen tons of these in the past, but I have never tried one on my own. Isn't that stinking fun! There might be more of these on here soon as I am loving this new to me idea.

It's a good life!
