Birthday 'Gator

Hi there!  I managed to grab some time to make a card today for three challenges.  I started out with the Reverse Confetti Sketch For You To Try.  I'd been intimidated by all the layers but I finally picked out some Glitz patterned paper and went for it.  I paper pieced the adorable alligator and his balloons and gift and then spent forever deciding which papers to use for which layer.  I'm happy with how it turned to so I guess it was worth the time!  :)  I'm also going to enter it in the Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes challenge and The Male Room challenge to make cards for babies and boys.  I think it's a fun card for a little lad!  That's it for me today.  Have a good evening!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  (Finnley 6x6) Glitz
Stamps:  (Alligator from Later Alligator, Sentiment, gift & balloons from Monkey Business) Reverse Confetti
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko,
Dies:  (Stitched Circle) Lil Inker
Gems:  Recollections

Cool! I love the layered background with such fun papers. And that image is just wonderful, perfect for a little boy! Thanks so much for playing along with our Babies & Little Boys theme at The Male Room! Deborah, DT.

Woo hooo! Your gator is awesome, Jen...and your papers/layers create the perfect stage for him! I have so much RC stuff, still unused, because I can't navigate my way through how to showcase them best. My paper/layers skills are woefully lacking! As you've mentioned, though: it's all about investing the time...and your results in doing so sure are rewarding!
