Dreams can come true

This new Echo Park paper has really inspired me to create some boy cards!  I needed a special card for my son, this weekend, and I thought it would pair up wonderfully with By The River, from Lili of the Valley.  You can get it as part of the LOTV boy set as well, which is a great way to get a bunch of stamps for less!


I've used a sentiment from Lili of the Valley's Dreamy Days Sentiments set as well.  That really is a denim blue, by the way, not black!

Copic Colours:
Skin - E000, 00, 02, chalks for blush and dirt on elbows
browns - E30, 31, 34, 50, 57
Blues - B000, 32, 34
Water - BG0000, 10, 11
Greens - YG01, 03, 17, 95, chalks
envelope - R24, 27

I've used the Sweet Sunday sketch for my layout.

Challenges:
Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge - Spring
Oldie But a Goodie - Spring is in the Air
One Stitch at a Time - No Square Cards
Stamptacular Sunday - Someone Special (my son)
Sentimental Sundays - photo inspiration (water)

I know, it's shocking... two non-girly cards in a row!  I must be coming down with something :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Materials used:   Stamp- Lili of the Valley 'By the River', Dreamy Days Sentiments; Paper- Echo Park 'Little Boy', PTI kraft cardstock, Bazzill denim blue cardstock; Ribbon- PTI Enchanted Evening saddle stitched ribbon; Copic Markers, SU chalks
