You Are My Sunshine

Hello friends ~ My sweet little grandson recently celebrated his first birthday, so I thought I'd share the pop-up card I made for him.

I was inspired by one of the pop-up books he has called Peek A Boo Sunshine. 

 One of the pages has a smiling sunshine that slides up out of the page.  I wanted to create my own idea of that, using this darling Lion die from Marianne Designs.

The lions head is attached to an action wobbler, so his little head wobbles back and forth.

The pop-up part of the card has sunshine and clouds that are super old dies, but timeless in style.  I stamped a smiley face onto the sunshine using a stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps, adding some copic and white gel pen details.  There's a large vellum cloud and some smaller white puffy clouds.

I made a few mistake here and there but overall, I'm happy with the way it came out. 

Here's a picture of our little "C" when he was born:

And here he is today!

The little doll is the size that he was when he was born.  He weighed just over 2 pounds.
He's now a strapping 12 pounds
and doing big boy things.

I'll be adding this card to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters ~ Die Cuts / Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!
