Happy Takeo

Today's card is special because this cutie, Takeo by Sister Stamps has the same name as my grandpa.  I inked him up with Copics and created a little scene with clouds using my die from Memory Box, and grass from Martha Stewart.   I added some Stickles on the balloons to give it some sparkle.  For dimension, I cut the string for the balloons from the image and added embroidery thread.  Also, a little tag stamp by Hero Arts with bakers twine.   Other supplies:  Spellbinder dies, tree die by Memory Box, and washi paper.  Of course, I had to add some stitches.


I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenges - Week 167 "Going Around in Circles"
Paper Shelter - Challenge 76 "Going Round and Round"

Thanks for stopping by.   Happy, happy crafting.
