Basic Grey & Sketch Saturday Challenges and TLC207

I had a card in mind when I made this one - I was going to send it to a friend's son, but now it's made, I don't think it's really suitable for a young-un!! Anyway, I used the sketch from the Sketch Saturday Challenge, and used the challenge from BasicGrey Challenges which is to use two different ranges of their papers - I used Strawberry Jam - Lollipop Shoppe and the Sugared papers. Hope I've interpreted their challenge correctly! I also incorporated todays Splitcoast Challenge TLC207 which is "cut it out" which is exactly what I've done with my latest buy from Stampin' Up - Loads of Love (and accessories) - great set, wish I'd bought it ages ago! I was going to add some more detail to the card, but decided not to if it was going to be for a boy, but now it isn't, I might go and tart it up a bit!!
Stamps used: Loads of Love Stampin' Up
Inks used: brown stazon
Colouring method: n/a
Cardstock used: basicgrey
Other Embellishments: eyelets
Tools: crop-a-dile, guillotine, creative memories circles

Just thought I'd share this with you all, too - my little boy obviously enjoyed the snow, and wanted to replicate the scene in our utility room!! I dread to think what will happen if there's flooding next!!!
