TGF Happy Day Oliver

My daughter had a birthday party yesterday for one of her kinder friends so I made this card using Oliver from the Happy Day set (Yes another TGF set!). I followed one of the sketches my BFF and I follow for our weekly challenges (see previous post). I can't believe that Oliver had never seen ink!

I am also going to enter this card into the Color Me Copic straight hair challenge. I followed the tutorial by Amy Young. My daughter was amused to see me colouring in while I watched the video. She was saying 'I don't think that's the right colour Mum! Do you think that looks the same? Why are you using a different stamp?' Remember she is five! In the end I kicked her out of the study because I needed to concentrate.
Card Recipe:
Cardstock: Bazzill, Plain white cardstock
Paper: DCWV Generation Stack
Stamps: TGF Happy Day set (Oliver)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Embellishments: Copic Markers, Kindyglitz Crystalina, gloss, American Crafts ribbon, Nestabilities, Stampin' Up slot punch

Thanks for looking...have a great day!

What an adorable image and layout! Susan, I'm glad you showcased this because my son is just getting into dinosaurs. I think you've just enabled me to get that stamp!
