Get Well Soon! & Friday Sketchers #92

Hello everyone and thanks for visiting my blog today!  Just a short posting today to show this card I made for a young man who is currently recovering from surgery. I hope he will be ok again very soon and that this card puts a smile onto his face! I colored "My Guy Ian" from The Greeting Farm with my 'Distress Ink Refillers'. The DP I used is from Basic Grey. For decorating I used a MS border punch, buttons, hemp cord and ribbon.  The sketch I used is this weeks sketch from Friday Sketchers done by Claudia. This is also my entry for their challenge #92.

 Distress Color Refills used:

Skin: Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar
Hat: Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky, Bundled Sage, Forrest Moss
Shirt & Shoes: Walnut Stain, Bundled Sage, Forrest Moss
Pants: Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky,
Shadow: Black Soot, Stormy Sky
Edges are airbrushed.

Love & Hugs,
