Papertake Challenge #44

Ok so I've decided that my cards are and always will be multi-functional cards.  It just motivates me to make more of a kick-a-- card. YEEHAW!!  (FYI - I live in cow country - always have always will)  Whether it works or not, that's what I'm going for! 

SO!!  A fellow DT member put out a request for us to make a card for a little boy down in the US who got hit by a car on his bike.  She says "It was pretty bad and at first they thought he was going to be paralized but thank goodness for those bike helmets b/c he's now expected to make a full recovery. He's at home in a lot of pain with a broken jaw now." 

I thought what a better time then now to finally use CHRISTIAN of Simply Betty Stamps.  Isn't he adorable?!!  Oh just what a tween boy would want to be called.  LOL!!  

I also needed inspiration so grabbed the sketch below from Papertake Weekly Challenge.  All supplies are listed below.  I'm LOVIN' this Bo Bunny "Paradise" paper line.  It's nice to use for mens/boys cards (which you'll see tomorrow too) for something different instead of blues or browns all the time.  I think I've colored every fishing, hunting, atv'ing stamp out there so this was a nice change! 


I made this card as "embellishment simple" as I could since it had a long way to go in the mail.  That was hard.  LOL!!

Stamps:  Simply Betty Stamps "Christian"
Paper: Bo Bunny "Paradise"
Embellishments: Misc brads and CB dots folder
Punches:  MS border punch
Ink: Colored With Copics and Momento Ink

aaaww!! That's so nice of you to make a card for that boy! I'm glad he's okay too! I love those BB papers too. At first I wasn't crazy on them, but then I kept seeing them everywhere and just kept liking them more and more! That Christian image is great too! Love it!
