Loves Rubberstamps "Sensational Sunday Inspirations" using PI Skater Boy

Happy Sunday Bloggers! Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving Holiday and Black Friday shopping (if you dared)! My family had a great Thanksgiving Day and although I am currently dieting, I wasn't too strict on myself and enjoyed all the delicious foods without stuffing myself way too much as I usually do on Turkey Day! LOL  I also stayed away from Black Friday shopping this year, although it would have been nice to get an early start on Christmas shopping.  I know that it will be here before we know it!

Well today I want to share my card for Loves Rubberstamps "Sensational Sunday Inspirations".  Here is my card:

This card uses MFT's "PI Skater Boy" and it was also perfect timing to make it for my son, Noah's 9th birthday which was a few days ago!  I stamped up this cute little boy using my memento ink in "Black Tuxedo" and colored him up with my copics.  I used the paper collection by Simple Stories called "Summer Fresh" to paper piece his shirt and skateboard.  I also used the fun papers for the background and also to make banners using the MFT "Banner Day" die.  I stamped "Noah" using a random stamp set I had.  Then I used my 1/4" circle to punch out the letters which I placed on dimensionals on top of each banner.  I also have some brown twine linking each banner together.  I added the same twine which I tied in a bow on top of a brown button as added embellishment.  The sentiment "Happy Birthday Dude" is also from the same MFT "PI Skater Boy" collection.  Finally I edged all papers with my Tim Holtz distress ink in "Frayed Burlap".  Hope you all like my card! I had so much fun making it!

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps Blog to see what other "Sensational Sunday Inspirations" were made by the rest of the Design Team.  Also check out the Loves Rubberstamps store for items I used on this card as well as much more!  There is a great promotion going on for "Cyber Monday" to get special gifts with purchase so head on over there.
