Now is the Time!!

A new month means a new challenge theme at One Crazy Stamper, and April's theme is Masculine!!!  I spent time this week playing with an Art Impressions Front and Back stamp, the Art Impressions Fence stamp, Stamping Bella's Little Umbrella image and a couple of Memory Box dies.

On the front of the card, the image was colored with Copics, fussy cut, then layered onto the fence image that I stamped on dp from My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Fiddlesticks collection.  The grass was cut with a Magnolia die, and the sentiment is from Pink By Design's retirement set.

The inside of the card features the Little Umbrella image also colored with Copics and fussy cut.  Both the clouds and branches are Memory Box dies and the sentiment is from the same stamp set as the front sentiment.
A big thank you goes out to my coloring buddy last Sunday, who gave me some wonderful suggestions to complete this card - can you spot the little bit of the sunbather's leg peeking through the grass on the front of the card?
