Too Much of a Good Thing is....

Wonderful!!! Hello and happy Wednesday : ) I made this for today's sketch challenge on SCS. I decided to use this totally cute and fun set from Artful INKables called Boys Will Be Boys. The dp is SU Manchester DSP. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored with Copics. I cut it out with my Small Deckled Nestabilities Rectangle and while leaving the Nestie in place I sponged the edges with Ranger Tea Dye Distress Ink. I used my SU Oval and Scalloped Oval Punches for the sentiment, and added a zigzag stitch to the middle strip panel.
My next card is the card I made for this week's Fun-Frilled Challenge to make a summer card. You can see my description of this card here. Thank you so much for stopping by today!

These are both fabulous. Your coloring amazes me. That little boy looks so perfect. The patterned paper is terrific with it. And beach girl makes me want to go on vacation! And maybe I'll learn to sew on cards while I am there!!!
