Happy Birthday with Riley the Moose

As soon as I saw this Fishing Riley stamp by Riley & Co., I knew he needed to be part of my stamp collection.  Our son likes moose and he's an avid fisherman (so much so that he's the fishing manager at our local Bass Pro Shops).  This made Fishing Riley the perfect image for him!  I finally got brave enough to color Riley with my copic markers (images with a lot of coloring really push my comfort zone) just in time for our son's birthday.  Masculine cards are always a challenge for me but cute images like this sure help!

I used this Double Pocket Card tutorial on SCS to make my card.  A gift card is in the first pocket and is hidden behind the Riley panel. I paper pieced the boat and Riley's hat.

A tag in the 2nd pocket has a sentiment from another new favorite stamp.  This card opens up so that my husband and I were able to write a birthday note to him.

Cardstock:  Bazzill, Recollections, Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper:  BG
Stamps:  Riley & Co (Fishing Riley), Studio G (sentiments)
Ink:  SU (Bliss Blue), ColorBox Fluid Chalk (chestnut roan)
Embellishments/Tools:  baker's twine (The Twinery), button from stash, Spellbinders (Standard Circles Large & Small), SU Journal Writer (Close to Cocoa), Copic Markers

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes - emphasis on twine
Divas by Design #37 - Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown #100- Masculine
Love to Create #17 - Add a sentiment
Stampin Sisters in Christ #117 - something you're afraid of (coloring details images)
Terrifically Thrilling Thursday - Pick at least 2 things from a list of required items (I chose the color blue & markers - if baker's twine counts as ribbon, that would be a 3rd)

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful weekend.
