Mini Mike Surprise

Hello lovely peeps

Just popping in to share a ribbon slider card that I made with an old IndigoBlu stamp set called Mini Mike. It's still available on the artist's website here.

The little chap on the inside is only wearing underpants on the actual stamp but I love the way he's got his arms thrown up in the air as if he's saying 'surprise'. Since the card is for a 9 year old I thought he'd better wear some clothes, so I inked up just the top half of the stamp and then drew a belt, trousers and shirt for him. 

Other ingredients:
In The Clouds 6x6 paper pad (Trimcraft)
bakers twine
Debi Potter numbers dies (Sizzix)
Stitched landscape dies (Poppystamps)
teenage boy sentiment stamp (LOTV)
sentiment from Freddie stamp set by Scruffy Little Kitten
black fineliner pen
2mm hole punch

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:-
 Simon Says Stamp (Wed) Interactive
Pammies Inky Pinkies 2141 Anything Goes
Get Creative Challenges #106 AG opt twist holidays

Thanks for stopping by, stay safe
