Elisabeth Bell's World July/August Challenge

Hi again!  I'm back, as promised, with my DT card for this month's Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge!  The theme this time is "for the boys".  You can make anything you'd like with a masculine theme, but you must use an Elisabeth Bell stamp (any company).   This came at a perfect time for me because I actually needed a birthday card for a little boy.  This one has already gone out to little Danny Nickerson, who turned 6 today.  Danny is from my hometown in MA and is battling a rare form of brain cancer.  There's been a huge outreach in the community to get lots of cards to Danny for his birthday and the response has been truly overwhelming!  You can read about it here.

Anyway, here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Real Red and the party-themed patterned paper is from the We R Memory Keepers Hip Hip Hooray collection.  The cute image is Party Present by Elisabeth Bell for Sweet Pea Stamps.  I stamped it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.   The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  Some polka dot ribbon, a couple of epoxy balloon stickers and a few buttons finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Elisabeth Bell's World Challenge blog and check out the wonderful projects from the Digi Bells, GDT and our Guest Designer for the challenge, Linda!  We hope you will play along!  You have until August 22nd to enter your project for a chance at a great prize from Polkadoodles.
