Alligator Birthday

So, another challenge is going on over at Addicted to CAS and I have a cute little card I made for a friend's son to link up.  Their code word this time is Birthday.  My friend's boy turns one and I have had this idea in my head for some time.  I really love how it turned out.


I just love this little alligator stamp by Inkadinkado.  It's part of a set that has a whole bunch of boy themed stamps and I've wanted to use this alligator for a while but just never had an idea for it.  I stamped it in black and coloured it in with my Spectrum Noir markers and then fussy cut it out.  The number one I had to make from a chipboard letter as I didn't have a one big enough for what I wanted.  This used to be an "I".  :-)  It also used to be yellow.  I painted it blue with some acrylic paint.  I stamped the grass (SU!) in two different greens and the sentiment (Fiskars) in black.  The alligator is raised up on some foam dots.  I think it turned out quite cute.  Here's a closer look at the alligator and the number one.  The chipboard was flocked so it has some texture to it.


I think I'll link this up to the new The Paper Players challenge #146 as well.  You have to create a CAS masculine card.  I think this qualifies quite nicely.  :-)

Anyway, that's all I have to share for now.  I hope you all have a super fabulous day!
