Puff, the Magic Dragon (GD Gig #6)

I was asked to join the Cardz 4 Guyz team for the month of August. Super excited! Cards for men challenge me in a way that I really like and it tends to get my creative juices flowing. Thanks for having me, Cardz 4 Guyz!!

I hope you'll come over and join us for our 'A Song Title' Challenge.

I chose Puff the Magic Dragon as my song. :) This is for our little cousin who turns three this month. I think it turned into a perfect little boy birthday card. This image is from Eureka Rubber Stamps. I colored him up with my Prismacolor pencils; I love the red and turquoise together. You can't tell in the pictures (I plan to try and take better ones tomorrow) but I am practicing coloring 'white'. The cardstock is Stampin' Up's Sahara Sand and Real Red. The sentiment is stamped in Real Red ink from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments set and die cut with the corresponding dies. The glittered number is Thickers. The embossing folder is Tim Holtz and here's a hint...it took almost a quarter inch off the length of my card. This was the first time I have used it (yes, I have been hoarding it :P) and I'll know now to leave some room for shrinkage.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.

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