Sentimantal Sunday #18 & Crafty Emma's Store #1

Hi girls. Glad you could make it over to my blog today. I hope you find something interesting or even inspirational. We had great weather yesterday - I even managed to sit out for a couple of hours in the garden in the sun. Long may this Indian summer continue.
I made this card with two challenges in mind. Sentimental Sundays wanted something "Clean and Simple with a Sentiment" and Crafty Emmas Store had the theme "Anything Goes". I chose papers from Stampin Up's Geometric papers and used plain blue cardstock a s a mount. I thought this gave a very clean and simple look. I inked up Whiff of Joy's "Sick Henry" and coloured him using my Copic Ciaos. I indulged slightly in that I cut out Henry's blanket and coloured it before I paper pieced it in place. I'm quite pleased with the result because when you look at the photograph you can hardly see that that is how it was done. The modest embellishments are from my stash.
I do hope you like this card. I would love to hear your views if you have time to leave a comment. Anything you have to say will be appreciated.
Have a good day and stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,
