Gordon Groundhog

Im diggin this gordon image! Hes too cute! I made this card for my husband. When I saw this image I knew I had to get it. Our anniversary is actually groundhog day!LOL! I colored Gordon using copics and added some texture to his fur and the dirt with my markers. I cut the image out and embossed using nesties. I also sponged a sky using versamagic chalk ink. This is the first time I've done this and I love how it looks!! After you emboss your image just leave it in the die and sponge away! The chalk ink wipes right off your nestie using a baby wipe. I used todays sketch challenge for my layout. I also used some DCWV animal crackers dp that Mama gave me.
Copics used:
e31, e33, e35, e37 (sand)
e55, e57, e59, (Gordon)

y17, y38 (hat)
b00, b01, b02 (jeans)
yg11, yg17 (grass)
b21, b24, b29 (flower)
r20, r22(cheeks)
