Snips & Snails and Puppy Dog Tails


This card was made for the Catch the Bug challenge over at Bugaboo Stamps, it is to make a male oriented card using the sketch. I chose to use Michael from the Brats group. Doesn't he look like he's been on a week long survivor adventure trip. All things a young boy would like, no clean clothes, no baths, getting dirty with no Mom to tell him to wash his hands. When I saw the challenge I just had to jump in (even though I always have trouble with sketch challenges.
I cut him out with the largest scalloped oval Nestabilities, then I smudged some Memento Desert Sand in the scallops, I used a glitter pen for the dots. I used lots of brown and beige Copics to color Michael also. The DP Sand Rain Drops from the Paper Company, the Snips and Snails came from my scraps drawer and I used EK Success Bumpy Road for the edging. Hope you like it and thanks for dropping by.
