You're The Best

Happy Saturday to all of you.  I have a new Bugaboo card to share with you. 

I've used Bugaboo's Deacon Swing on my card.  I think this little fella is so cute swinging away with his best buddy, his little teddy bear.  I used my copics and colored pencils to color the image and used Flower Soft on the tree leaves above him.  I only had white Flower Soft so I used my Tombow markers and a little spritz of water to make it green.  Of course I also colored my fingers green in the process but I won't show you a picture of them lol!  I stamped my sentiment on a die-cut cloud and added a little punched fence behind his swing.  Some brads and ribbon finished off my card.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
