It's Your Day! Hambo Hoedown

Welcome to another fun Hambo Hoedown Challenge! This challenge will certainly get your mojo flowing and get creative.  The challenge is to make a baby card in the non-traditional way.

Making this card was a lot of fun and I kept thinking about those novelty birthday books you can buy about the year you were born.  They are so much fun to read and learn about what all was happening that special year. Although my  creation is not so much that in depth, the sentiment made me think of such an item. :)

I used Hambo Stamps digi of Paperboy and colored him with Copics before fussy cutting him out.  I used some patterned paper from Authentique and some Kraft cardstock.  I used my scallop nesties to cut out the top corner for the patterned paper to peek out from before popping up the Paperboy.  I finished the card with some twine and a made a tab cutout for the sentiment. 

Thanks for popping in and be sure to stop by the Hoedown to see the other fun creations the other Bacon Bits have put together.  And while you are there, link up your fabulous creation for your chance to win! Have a great Wednesday!
