Elisabeth Bell and a Sweet Sketch Wednesday Card

Hi, everyone!
I have been dying to find a challenge that would suit this adorable Elisabeth Bell image, and I found a few! :0) I colored him up for the Elphine House Australia challenge, It's a Boy Thing - Color Challenge.
The theme is to create a card for boys using blues and greens (such yummy colors, I think!). :0)
Here's my card:

I used the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch for Challenge #143 for this. Here's their sketch to follow:

I did some scrounging in my stash for my papers. I had a bunch of old Stampin' Up, and a few I can't recall where from, to use. I grabbed a bunch of punches out of punch drawer, and I layered several of them for the horizontal pieces. I also used my star punches and a ribbon punch to create the ribbon slide. I was thinking of adding a sentiment in that spot, but decided I liked the stars better. :0) That leaves me plenty of options for sending this card out, when I figure out where it's going, that is. lol! I had so much more blue in my paper than greens, so I did some light inking around everything with a Garden Green Stampin' Up ink and dauber.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek today! Ihope you enjoy my little dreamer! :0)
Happy Crafting!
