Love to Scrap: Challenge #1: Anything Goes!

The Challenge
The very first challenge on Love to Scrap's blog is entitled, "Anything Goes," so basically you can make any type of project. The design team members were given digital stamped images by Bugaboo Digi Stamps to work with. The winner will receive 7 digital stamps from Bugaboo as a prize, and the images are super cute! 

The Reveal
I made this birthday card for my nephew who will be turning 6 next month.

The Details
I chose to work with the Deacon Piper digital stamp because it reminded me of my nephew who was Peter Pan last Halloween. His sister was Tinkerbell, and my hubby was pretending to throw candy at them when they came trick-or-treating at our house.

I colored the image with Copic markers.

I made some notes using gems and a brown liner marker, stamped "Happy Birthday To You!" so it would look like the piper was playing the birthday song.

I used two pieces of BoBunny patterned papers (background) that I had lying around on my desk which I had just received from attending a crop. I matched it with a piece of scratch Scenic Route paper (banners) from my scrap pile. I love how everything from different places came together.

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Papers: Bo Bunny, Scenic Route
Digital Stamp: Bugaboo Digi Stamps
Sentiment Stamp: My Sentiments Exactly!
Ink: Prima Marketing, Stampin’ Up
Border Punch: EK Success
Gems: Doodlebug Designs
Markers: Copic
