Have a Kickin’ Day! C4C #130


Happy Saturday! Saturday means it’s time for Crazy 4 Challenges! Today Frances has a fabulous sketch for us:


Frances loves square cards and I don’t, but I’m doing it for her since this is her last challenge to host for a while ;-)

I really wanted to use this adorable soon-to-be-released Fred Bear called Kung Fu Fred. Isn’t he da bomb??? I just chuckle every time I look at him. And he begs to create a scene, don’t you think? I think you can see the layout pretty well and I’m using a couple of new Die-namics dies, as well, Die-namics Chevron Stripes and Die-namics Circle STAX 1 & 2.

Fred and the board were colored with Copic markers, fussy cut out and then set up in his scene. In addition to the new Die-namics dies, I’m using
Die-namics Sunshine, Die-namics Fresh Cut Grass, Die-namics Cloud Trio, and Die-namics Teardrop Tree.

Here’s the inside with Fred again and a sentiment from the set. Can’t you see this as a birthday card for a little boy?


Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:







And that's all for me for me! Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!
