You're my Hero

For the weekend Club Anya has made a "Case the card" contest. we had to case this gorgeous card by Mercy. She's a very talented lady, and has a lot of beautiful creations. I chose to work my first card with Batter Ian, a digi stamp from TGF. I just love this guy, he seems so smart and determined.. he's my Hero!! :) lol

I had the perfect papers for this card. These are a couple of 8 x 8 papers a friend of mine had sent me in a RAK, she could't see how she can use them... but I did! So I'm just so thank ful she sent them to me instead of binning them. Thanks hun! :)

I added dimension to this guy by popping an extra cap and body. I did this by gluing the top part and used large glue dots in the bottom part of the cap. The number "8" is an element sticker from Basic Grey Urban Prarie 12inch pack. Obviously, I went with lots of dots and faux stitching with black and white pens. Some buttons, square brads and fibres to embellish... and voila!! My Hero is finished!! :)

A detailed view of the work done on Ian :)

The inside is done by the rest of what was left out from the teo papers I had used on the front. I finished with a rub on sentiment on the inside, and a computer generated one for the front. What do you think of thiscard? I'm so thankful for those who follow my Blog, and leave me comments here. You give me a lot of boost to try even more to give you some inspiration through my creativity.

I'm off to spend my day at my family. Tonight I'll be visiting your blogs, and leave some love to those who have been so kind to me leaving encouraging messages here! Hugs and God bless you!
