HMF #96 Challenge - Green & Yellow Football

This is my card for the HMF #96 Challenge. These little guys aren't playing football but they are playing a game. Its called 'Shoot the Pimento'. This will be a birthday card for my niece who has loved olives since birth I think. She might even like to play this game invented by these 2 little mice. Her birthday isn't until December so I'm a bit early making it. Her sisters have their BD's in July and I haven't even started their cards yet. Those might be another challenge on HM...

I colored the main image with copic markers. I love using these markers and have slowly collected quite a collection of them. The sentiment was stamped with black ink and then I used clear ep to heat emboss. A Happy BD embossing folder was used for the bg which I took a sanding block to. A few flowers & brads were added to finish it off.

Here are the ingredients for this card:

Stamp: HM What a Pit & SU Birthday Wishes
Ink: Black Memento
Paper: Green & Yellow Cordinations textured cs, SU barely banana, crumb cake and choc. chip
Accessories: Spellbinders dies, MS punch, Happy BD ef, sanding block, green & yellow Prima's, fancy brads & copic markers.
Techniques: Dry & heat embossing and alcohol markers.

I did stay up late last night finishing this card. I guess I just enjoy the quiet of the evening to do my cards. I never seem to have time during the week nights or days to make my cards, so, I look forward to Saturday nights to do my thing. I love coloring the HM stamps and creating cards for all occassions with them. I look forward to making many more.

I really enjoy reading peoples comments on my cards which are posted here and on Splitcoast. So thank you all for taking the time to look at my cards and I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
