Box Crayzee

Another pop-up card!  I said in my last post that they are addictive!

Anyway, this card was made for my Nephews 7th birthday last weekend and I am assured that he was sufficiently overjoyed at receiving it! (sadly I missed out on seeing him on his birthday for the first time since he was born, if I remember correctly!).
For once, I kind of remember where the papers are from.  The come from Cricut paper pad called "Tags, bags, boxes and more".  I do not have a Cricut machine, but just loved this paper pad so had to grab it!

The stars are hand drawn/cut and the letters are Sizzix Bigz dies.  The cardstock is from American Crafts.

The image is a free one, available to members of the Jelly Park Post Pals Club.  The creator of the Jelly Park stamps kindly gives away a series of stamps to those who use them to send cards/projects to poorly kids as part of the Post Pals scheme.  This is certainly worth a look and very rewarding. 

I coloured this image using the following Promarkers:

HAT: Burgundy, Poppy, Red, Cool Aqua.
SKIN: Ivory, Dusky Pink, Coral, Blush.
HAIR: Cocoa.
JUMPER: Ginger, Mandarin.
TROUSERS: China Blue, Prussian.
SHOES: Cool Grey 3 to 5.
SOCK MONKEY: Ivory, Grass, Yellow, Tulip Yellow.
The blue details on the hat and the yellow stripes on the sock monkey are blinged up with stickles.
I would please like to enter this card in the following challenges:
