Surfer Boy Birthday

Hi Everyone,
I'm changing gears here a little. I have a cutesy kind of card today. It is a boy's birthday card. I used Surfer Ian from the Greetings Farm for the main image. I stamped him and colored with Copics. I really bumped him up off the card with a little stand. Like a Z shape. Check out the detail photo to see the stand.

You can see he left his little flip flops on the sand.

See how the waves "glitter". (It's Stickles.)

Here is the detail of the little stand to bump him up. This makes it look like he is really hanging ten!

Materials List:

Stamps: Surfer Ian from The Greeting Farm, Sentiment from Stampin' Up, Flip Flop from Art Impressions

Assorted DP


Yellow CS

This card qualifies for the following Fun challenges:

Hope you have enjoyed hanging ten with me today! Have a great day.
