Celebrate Good Times

Shhhh...   I'm  not supposed to be buying any new craft supplies,
but I just couldn't resist these 'Amigos'.
I thought they would be great for hubby's birthday card,
and, with all the sentiments they come with, they are super versatile.


 1. Cover base card with dp.
2. Die-cut stitched rectangle.
3. Stamp 'celebrate' sentiment and heat emboss with clear powder.
4. Add stitched hillside border.
5. Stamp and die-cut three amigos, colour with Copics and white gel pen,
and attach with foam pads.
6. Add glitter dots and attach the panel to the base card with foam pads.


Challenges

These critters definitely remind me of 'Over the Hedge'. One of those 'kids' movies that just cracks me up!
