Soldier Boy

Good Monday morning all!!! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I got a lot done. I think I'm in spring cleaning my house mode right now after months of neglect. I still have a lot to do, but taking one bite of the elephant at time. I got to see the new Alice in Wonderland movie this weekend and it was fabulous! The visuals were just outstanding and Johnny Depp was excellent.

For today's card I used Soldier Ian from The Greeting Farm. He was release as a set previously and has made a come back as a single. I colored Ian up with copics and paired him with some funky Basic Grey paper. I tried to make the brown represent the ground, the blue the sky, and the other paper maybe a city or technological advances. This is a great stamp and perfect on projects military loved ones in your life and care packages.

Thanks for joining me today. Tomorrow is I will have an ICS challenge card for you. Have a wonderful day.
