Edward Boy's Birthday Card

I LoVe LOVE this Edward stamp!  He was my inspiration for this whole card.  I just got him and of course had to use him, he is soo darn cute.  This will go to my grandson, I know my daughter will incorporate this card into his scrapbook...hehehe.  Actually she may steal it, she's the Edward fanatic.  This card came together nicely.  I was kinda sick of green but used it anyway.  One of the challenges called for using your gemstone color.  Since both mine and the birthday boy's are Emerald for May I decided to get out the green's.  Didn't have to worry about face coloring, left it white.  I really need to invest in more SU markers!  This little Cutie fits into 9 Challenges, I know it could be entered into lots more.  I am still afraid and don't want to get booted again...lol.  These are the challenges I entered:

The Edward stamp is  new, everything else came from my stash..(will it ever be used up!).  This is what I used to create my card:
  • Cricut & Gypsy to cut out squares, circle, and balloon's used Mini Monograms, Plantin Schoolbook and Hello Kitty Greetings.  Using my Gypsy I was able to just cut out the balloons, poor Kitty was off the mat..
  • Cricut, SCAL and Gel Pen Holder (created by Amy Chomas) & Mini Gel Pens to print Happy Birthday Dude in Emerald Green Double Feature Font
  • Green Rhinestone's
  • SU Markers
  • Opaque Emerald Green Ribbon
  • Martha Stewart Edger
  • Emerald Green Buttons
  • Thick green thread for balloons with a green brad
  • Distressed edges and Cuttlebug embossing with green stamp pad
  • Cuttlebug and 3 Embossing Folders, Swiss Dot's and??
  • The "Star"  Edward from The Greeting Farm Stamps
I did not reinforce the base of this easel card with chipboard because I think my daughter will scrap it into my grandson's scrapbook ASAP.   Thanks for looking.  Really appreciate the comments.
