Baby Bud card for my neighbor

Hi, I am back again today.
I really wanted to share this card I made for my neighbor. Now, what is so special about that, you might be thinking. Well, the card is for my 3 year old neighbor and there is no special occasion... just that he is so darn cute. His name is Amir and he lives next door to me. Here is his card.

I used a Baby Bud image and colored it with Copics. CS: Bermuda Bay from Stampin' Up and Solar white from Neenah. DP is all from Crate Paper. I used a Spellbinders die to cut the image and DP.

Accents are ribbon and brads. On the inside, you may wonder why I stamped "bonjour" (Stampsmith stamps). There is a cute story behind this. Amir was out in the yard with his Grandpa and he was saying that Amir was learning French at his pre-school. When asked to speak French he said, "Bonjour". It was the cutest thing!!! Here is the inside of the card.

A Few Fun Challenges for Bonjour Baby Bud:
Baby Bud Designs: die cuts and punches
Stamp Something: Use a digi
Totally Papercrafts: Recipe- one image, 2 papers, 3 embellishments
The Pink Elephant: Sketch
A Spoonful of Sugar: White with one other color
Okay, I should quit for the day. Love ya.
