Carson's Day!

 Happy Birthday Carson!

This is one of those cards where I vowed to use only things off the top of my desk... I pulled the teenage boy from my duplicate images bag, the sun was one recently colored for another card but would not fit the card design, background paper was in my left over scrap pile, the oval mat was die cut from CS scrap on which I had stamped the "floating music" and the gold paperclip was off my desk.  The sentiment is even stamped on CS left after the die cut!  *giggle*
Needless to say, however, putting sources on all that is going to go by the wayside! 
I did 3-D the young man and the sun using Paper Tole techniques [my fave technique!] Both images were colored with Copics- my all time favorite product!

This card should be eligible for the following 
Top Tip Tues – Cut it Out [die & fussy]
Paper Shelter #208 – Make it Digital 
Simon Says Wed – Fave Technique or Product [Paper Tole / Copics]
OSAAT #239 – ATG w/ Men
One Sweet Challenge –  Dies or Punches [die cut - Lil Inkers Stitched Oval]

Create wildly and color with abandon!  ~ginny
