Birthday Card for Daddy Bear


LOTV Sketch 102
 I bought this LOTV Stamp when it was released this spring and have been anxious to ink it up. I had planned to use it for Father's Day but that plan did not work out so I am now going to use for Lili of The Valley's Sketch challenge this week in a birthday card. I stamped it on white CS and colored with Copics and sponged the background. I cut the image with a circle die and matted on another circle. Cut 3 rectangles of BasicGrey DP that I attached to Cranberry square card base...seldom make square cards but this cried to be square.  Stitched on a wide lime green ribbon and adhered the image. Finished with a Birthday tag with ribbon.
Challenges:
Lili of the Valley: Sketch 102
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge:  Recipe challenge: 1 Tag, 2 Circles, 3 Rectangles or Squares. This sketch worked well with this recipe.
BasicGrey Challenges: Use stitching. Stitching is not one of my favorite to do but it worked well with my ribbon.
Crafts and Me: Theme is Birthday Cards.

Supplies:
Stamp: LOTV From the Boys Collection, GKD Sentiment
Inks: Memento Rich Cocoa, Desert Sand, New Sprout
Copics: C00,1,3,9, B24,26,000, E00,30,31,33,34,,55,YG 93,Y28,R59
Papers: GKD Cranberry Tart and White CS, BasicGrey Oliver Paper Pack
Atyou Spica Gold Pen
Nesties Circle Dies, Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Die (Modified)
Ribbons from stash

Daddy Bear's birthday is not until October so for once I am ahead of the game. And he will not remember this card when I give it to him then.
Thanks for stopping by! Theresa
