Tiddly Tuesday!! Challenge #41 - Kraft With Me

Good Morning Everyone!!  Today's Tiddly Card is one of the most special cards I've made this year.  Today is my sweetie, darling, lovey and huggy son Tyler's 5th birthday.  Astounding, really.  He's just everything and more than we could ever expect him to be.  Sigh...he's just awesome.
So!  With that, I've made a very special card, using a very special image drawn by Christy per my request to have a tap dancing boy - this image is Ty The Tap Dancer.  My son LOVES to dance, takes dance lessons and is excelling at an incredible rate.  (not that I like to brag or anything ;) hehee...what Mom doesn't?  LOL!

This week's Challenge #41 is called Kraft With Me.  I kept my card super basic as I really wanted to focus on the image.  Plus, I wanted my son to be able to keep it on his nightstand (where he keeps special things) and to be able to hold it without a lot of "fussyness" all over it.

I printed Ty out and colored him with all of my newest Copic colors!  I stitched around the edge and using a Doodlebug acrylic stamp set, stamped the first part of my sentiment 'happy' in SU!'s Marina Mist ink.

I added two layers behind my main image - SU! Bashful Blue and a strip of vintage looking chart paper (can't remember whose it is).  I stitched both to make them pop and layered them behind Ty.  I then adhered everything down and tied a simple knot with blue and white gingham ribbon.

I decorated the interior using lots of scraps from one of my many scrap boxes.  I inked the rest of the Doodlebug sentiment and using the same SU! ink stamped on Kraft to make it coordinate with the rest of the card.  
One last shot of my creation along side my son's medal from his first ever dance recital.  He was so proud!!!  Happy Birthday Darling 5 Year Old Boy!!!
