Little Boy Blue

The Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge is to produce a creation in the color blue and/or red. It is very plain to see my choice as everything is pretty much blue -- with four different pattern papers stitched together. The blue flowers are dry embossed for dimension and have liquid applique centers. The charming little boy colored with prismas, is peering with a toothless grin from out of a sizzix frame. I didn't want to make this one girly, girly so bugs are added -- ' cause boys like bugs right? I encourage you to visit Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge to see the fabulous design team creations and consider participating in their great challenges (one every week -- posted on Sundays along with a Bible verse and inspiring commentary). This little boy blue is in the mail to someone I think is very special -- my grandson.

Stuff I used: Stamps by Art Impression, Stampendous. Sizzix, Nestabilities, Emagniations punch, ribbons and bugs from stash.
