A Child's Smile

I needed a boyish card.

I used Sizzix's Dress Ups Overalls die to punch out the trucks and outfit.


The second layer was created by stamping Papertrey Ink's Grunge Me circles.

I love the sweet sentiment by true is that???

Trying to keep the card boyish, I tucked the grosgrain ribbon instead of tying a bow.

Using a Uniball white pen, I added little details.

The lovely sketch was provided by CardPatterns Sketch 127.

I am also entering this square card in Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge Week 67
anything but a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2 " card.

Thanks for peeking in today. ;)
