Someone Special...At The Stamping Boutique

I am thrilled to be working on The Stamping Boutique DT, and especially as my card this week is for such a fab challenge. The theme for this fortnight is 'For Someone Special.' We all have special people in our lives, and every once in a while it's nice to let them know how special they are to us. My card is for my youngest son, Noah...he will be 5 next month.

I used the Noah's Ark image from The Stamping Boutique to make this rocker card. The papers are Pink Petticoat Little Swirls. The image is coloured with promarkers cut out before mounting onto the card. The white waves are attached using foam pads for a 3D effect, then a few blue gems have been added. The 'Son' letters have been die cut using the Cuttlebug 'Hippie Chick' alphabet, as were the hearts. I added a ric-rac ribbon to the  base-edge of the rocker (hard to see in the pic!) and the final touch is a small 'Autism Awareness' ribbon on the RHS of the Ark, as my Noah has autism.

We would LOVE for you to join the challenge, and you don't have to use a Stamping Boutique image, although we love it when you do, so much so, you get entered for the prize twice!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Hope to see you over at THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE!
