Special Request!!...Have a Roarin' Great Day!!

This card is for Tina's Grandfather's 88th Birthday. Just in case you didn't see the earlier post...Tina is the owner of High Hopes Rubber Stamps....and has been ask by her uncle to fill her Grandfather's mailbox with well wishes. You can read more about in this post.

If you would like to make Tina's Grandfather's Day...please email me ....here and I will give you his address. Also if you have a photo of the card you send or have put it on your blog ...would you please let me know...or send me a photo if possible. Because of the distance between them...Tina won't be seeing her Grandfather on his Birthday...but would love to see the cards he receives. If no one minds...I will upload them to my challenge blog and everyone can see them.

*Edited to add......You can see cards for Tina's Grandfather on this post "Special Request! Birthday Cards for Grandfather"

Onto the card...The Fabulous High Hopes lion I used on this card is called, "Leo". The circle and sentiment is computer generated. The sketch I used is from Mojo Monday 68. What a Great Sketch this was to work with!!

Leo is colored with prismacolor pencils(oms) and H20's.

To create the background I mask the image and brushed on Bordering Blue SU ink for the sky. I then brushed on Old Olive SU for the foreground.

The circle with 88 and the sentiment is set on foam dimensionals.

Paper - Georgia Pacific white, Treasures CS, SU ruby red , k&company patterned papers.

Ink - versafine black, bordering blue, old olive

Accessories - brads, metal clip, fibres, ribbon, stitching

Have a Great Day Everyone!!...and Thank you so much for your lovely comments!!
