Annabelle's Idol...

Time to make a birthday card for my nephew, or should I say one of my nine nephews!  So I thought I'd take the opportunity to join in Paper Crafts 2013 Gallery Idol too as the theme first up is Birthday Cards for Kids / Teens.  I've been wanting to ink up this little guy from Annabelle Stamps for ages, so I'm playing along with this fortnights Annabelle Stamps Sketch Challenge too.  

The background was created using Distress Inks Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey, oversprayed with Glimmermist Gold.  I paper-pieced my friendly Annabelle Stamps Lil Monster using cardstock and My Mind's Eye papers, hand drew the balloon end and string, added some Studio Calico flair for my cute little balloon, stamped the Annabelle Stamps sentiment, then ran the bottom two-thirds of my cardstock with a Lifestyle Craft Chevron embossing folder and added some MME Enamel Dots, before I pop dotted my cardstock layer, and the Lil Monsters eyes!

Remember - there is a FAB Clearance Sale over at Annabelle Stamps if you hurry, and you have until Monday night to link up to three cards in 2013 Gallery Idol Birthday Cards for Kids / Teens.
