TGF - Farm Fresh Challenge!! Congrats!

Hello Everyone!!  Popping in today to play along with TGF's Farm Fresh Friday challenge.  The challenge was to create a Graduation or a Congratulations card.  I don't have anyone in my life graduating but my son's preschool year is almost coming to an end so I've made this to give him on his last day. (well...until he returns next year!) =)  

I've used Hello Ian as my focal image today.  Isn't he RIDICULOUSLY adorable??  I've paper pieced his coat and scarf using a color palette of greys and reds.  I pulled black and beige in as well.  His insanely cute cap is stamped onto self-adhesive linen, shaded with my Copics and then trimmed out.  I glazed up his sweet sun flower just a touch in the center.  

I used my SU! tab punch to add my sentiment (PTI) 'Celebrate' and I fastened it with a chocolate brown staple.  I used my SU! notebook punch for the bottom edging, linen twine and SU! River Rock stitched ribbon for my embellishments.  And lastly I added a black, rhinestone flourish to my background for some added pop.

I hope you have enjoyed and been inspired!!
