Sugar Bowl Challenge 123 - April 2015

Good Morning!

Hello everyone, it time for the Sugar Bowl Challenge, so here's my Design Team card for you this month. The theme as always is Anything Goes.

For my card this month I decided to eek out of my comfort zone and make a boy's card. I chose this cute digi image called 'Puppy Dog Tails' by Dianne Duda to work with, and you can buy him from Funkykits here. He's so cute, but you can imagine him being a typical boy - trouble with a capital 'T'! I coloured him with my Copic Pens and added an exert from the 'Sugar and Spice' poem and teamed him up with a few die cut stars and dots.
Here's What I Did
I used an 5" x 5" white card base and matted it with both blue and green card. I used CraftArtist2 to created my layout which I printed directly onto some colouring/blending card stock. The image, frame and text were then cut into a square, and coloured with Copic markers. I added foam tape to the back of the completed topper and attached it to my card base. To finish off I added some die cut stars and punched out dots.
Here's What I Used
