MFTeasers-Day Three!

It's Pure Innocence day for MFT Teasers and can I just say, they are stinkin' cute!!!

Let's get right to it then, shall we? I used PI Skater Boy for my card today. I always have so much fun paper piecing the PI girls, and this little guy was just as much fun to "dress".

The patterned papers are from my Basic Grey Life of the Party pad...it's full of great masculine colours. He's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and whatever wasn't paper pieced was coloured with copics. I love cutting these little people out and popping them on Jody's foam boosters for a little dimension. The embossing folder I used on the blue layer is called Diamond Plate.

My new open zig zag border along with the stacking stars die-namics are perfect elements for boyish (or manly) cards, and I thought the cork was a fun addition instead of just using cardstock. I also added some Pea Pod Twine for a little pop of colours. The layout is SC327.
