Henry does ABC and meets Simon

ABC's challenge this week is embossing, whilst Simon Says is Green and Red.
This is about the best green and red  I could come up with -  I don't do green and red and think I've done well to colour the adorable Henry in these colours, just hope it's OK, if not they'll have to expel me.
Henry is coloured in Copics, inks used to distress the edges and cut out with the Nestie  Labels 1. The inner square is embossed with the Snow dots folder, the outer with the Snowflake border and the edges distressed with inks. The sentiment is Papermania and heat embossed with silver powder.




Image  -  WOJ Henry with lantern
Medium  -  Copic markers and Ranger distress re-inkers
Tools  -  Nestie Labels 1
Embellishments  -  Ribbon, pin and beads/pearls from stash

This is so fresh and delightful, Heather -- another joyful card! And, I can't believe it! We must surely have the same taste (at least I would like to think so as I am a "secret admirer" of yours), I just finished remodeling my blog and when I came to visit you -- I seem to have chosen the same borders from the background fairy. Smiles to you from Sunny Arizona!
