Birthday Card With Guilty Bert!


This is “Guilty Bert’ from Mo’s Digital Pencil.  I think I love this image so much because it reminds me of my grandson Owen….lol.  I colored the image with Copics and layered it on navy blue and red card stock from Simon Says Stamps.  The sentiments are both from SSS.  The designer paper is from the Be Different Collection by Fancy Pants.  Then I added some red and blue embroidery floss to the button and did some faux stitching with a white gel pen.  Don’t you just love the definition of ‘boy’!
