Little Boys! Don't ya love 'em!!!

Our Daily Bread designs stamps, Little Boys, designed by Grace Nywening
Hello friends!!! 
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  I certainly did!  Yesterday was my birthday and I was blessed beyond measure with messages, emails, drop in visitors bearing gifts and cards,  and a special lunch after church with our kids.  It was our first day back to church since my husband's health issue and it felt so good to be back in God's house worshiping together with our church family!  There are some wonderful TV Pastors on TV , but nothing quite matches worshiping together with your church family!

Anyhow... this is a card I created for an SCS challenge using this month's Our Daily Bread designs set,  Little Boys.   I think this image is so precious!  It makes me think of my grandson.  Even though he is 15 now, he has always loved to fish and could spend hours fishing off our dock even when he didn't have a very long attention span for anything else!  This image would be perfect for a little boy's birthday, but also as a boy baby card.  Here is the set:

Our Daily Bread designs, Little Boys

The dies are Spellbinders Lattice Pendant, Ribbon Banner, and Lattice Accents. and Classic Ovals Lg.   The embossing folder is Crafts Two.   I stamped the image with Versamark and heat embossed with Stampendous Pearlustre Sapphire embossing powder.  Then I sponged over it lightly with soft sky and not quite navy ink.  I tucked the Spellbinders classic circle into the lattice pendant and popped up the layers.

I just love this sweet card Grace!! The blue silhouette and your sponging is perfect with your beautiful framing. The white edging with the embossing paired with the polka dotted paper makes the image pop.
