I opted to use the adorable Pure Innocence Firefighter Boy. His uniform is totally cute and I love that the set contains a fire extinguisher too! I thought the little star eyelets were a nice touch for this brave little guy.

I used a sketch from the Card Positioning System 5th anniversary celebration, CPS220, which is sponsored by MFT. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copic markers. I added some tiny black brads for the buttons on his jacket.

The fire extinguisher is also coloured with copic markers and the sentiment was stamped with Versamark and embossed with vanilla embossing powder to make it stand out on the black background. For the horizontal element I wrapped some stone twine around the entire panel and secured it on the back.

On the inside I added a red strip that I cut out with the Monarch Border Die-namics and stamped another sentiment from the set. The patterned paper is new, My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Dilly Dally...love it!!! I received a big box of new MME paper goodness on the weekend...yay for happy mail!!

Here are the Die-namics I used:

Thanks for stopping by!
