Hello Alligator

Good morning all,

I hope the sun is shining down on you all today. It is shining here at the moment but it was pouring down a little while ok. I have a quick card to share with you today and then I am off to celebrate little mans birthday as my Mum has come up to visit with his gifts. We are not doing much as he is only going to be One (On Tuesday) but we are getting a little cake.
Right here is my card:

I have used the fab new image Alligator Swim from 2 Cute Ink and coloured him with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I have used my spellbinders dies to cut him out and layered him on a scalloped oval (also Spellbinders). I have used my Border die to cut a zig zag border and used papers from my stash. I hit the ribbon drawer and found a yellow and a red ribbon that matched the paper. I used the yellow ribbon to cover the edge of the paper and then used the red ribbon to hang Alligator. This way he moves around a bit when you move the card. I added some little green buttons to give a bit more detail and cover where the ribbon joins the card. I then embellished with Candi and lots of little gems that I coloured with Promarkers to match the image.

Please check out the 2 Cute Ink Blog to see what my other team mates have done with this cute little image.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

The Paper Shelter - Dies
Creative Inpirations - Anything Goes
