Special Delivery

This is the card that I made for my Brother-in-Law, I love this cute little DigiStamp Boutique Murphy image, I think he is perfect for a male card.

I coloured Murphy with ProMarkers, cut him out with a Spellbinders Standard Circle die and mounted him onto a Scalloped Circle die cut. The papers are from the HOTP - Nonna's Garden collection, I've had these in my stash for ages, and the die cut corners have been cut with a Die-namics die. I have made a little collar with some card stock and a buckle.  The card candy is from my stash and my sentiment was computer generated and printed on a DigiStamp Boutique Simple tag.

I have decorated the inside of my card with the same papers.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

DigiStamp Boutique May Customer Competition - Use a DigiStamp Boutique image
Digi Sketch Challenge - Cute (T)
