Monday Funday #11 - Oh Boy!

Today's Monday Funday is Oh Boy! - create a boy themed card.  Head over to the TGF Farm Fresh Challenge blog to see what the Design Team has created for you! 
My card base is kraft with layers of spruce and designer paper from DCWV's This Christmas stack.  I used a zig zag stitch around the large layer and a straight stitch on the inner layer.  I wrapped the base with Night of Navy grosgrain ribbon, then made a bow and attached with a glue dot.  The image is Later Skater Ian and is cut with a nestabilities die, then mounted with dimensionals.  The santa hat is cut on the Cricut using Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge.  The sentiment is printed using Stencil font and punched with a 1 1/2" circle and mounted on a 1 3/4" circle, then mounted with dimensionals. 
The inside hides a little surprise...a gift card!  I used a scrap of the spruce paper to decorate the inside with a forest punch by EK Success.  Thanks for looking!  April
