Tag It

It's time for one of my favorite challenges that we do at Addicted to Stamps and More...CAS! Talan was invited to a birthday party on Saturday and needed a card. Of course, I had NO little boy cards. I hardly even have any boy stamps at all!  I used some inspiration at The Friday Mashup! and made my card using the colors Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi.

I scanned my stamp sets and saw this cute little lizard from Tag It. This Ronald McDonald set is retiring soon, so this was probably my last time to use it!
I first stamped my lizard stamp and then I stamped it again on a Post-it-Note, cut it out and masked my little guy on the card so I could stamp the grunge over it. I got a little carried away and stamped more red there along the bottom that I originally wanted, but I figured it was for a 9-year-old boy who was probably going to be throwing it away, so I didn't want to waste any more cardstock (or time! lol) to redo it. How bad is that?!!!!  I decided to roll the corner and add a peek of  DSP behind it. Of course, everyone in my house thought someone ripped my card when they saw the corner like that. lol I know you crafters all know better. :)
