Party Hearty
Sweet Sketch 110-32
Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday!  Today I am showing off  Lenny Memorial from Stamp Fairy.  I knew he would make a wonderful birthday card for my SIL.  Well,  this card is long gone....out of my possession so I only have these photos to show for it.  It's always a challenge to create a guy card as it is so easy to create something girly.  I don't think I added too much fuss to this one! My favorite part of the card is probably the hearts made from the Cuttlebug embossing folder along with the EK Starry Night border punch!  I guess if you take those two things away there isn't much left!  However, Lenny is a great little soldier! I also glossed his little night goggles but didn't color them too dark.  I probably could have gone a shade or two darker in the grey tones.

This is Arlana's Sweet Sketch 110-32. 
 A sketch from the and easy and shows off the image to the tee!
