Happy Birthday Dude!

I often joke around with my now 14 year old nephew and when I do I call him "Dude". He is quite athletic and likes to keep busy so I think Dudley and his surf board are perfect for him. 

My card  includes two High Hopes Stamps: Surfer Dude Dudley can be found here and Wave Border which can be found here, to create my scene. 


I coloured Dudley using alcohol markers and paper pieced his surf board. I think Dudley would have the coolest board on the beach don't you? I masked him off  to stamp my wave border, coloured the beach and added real sand to create the beach. The sky background was stamped with ink and a sponge. I finished my card off with a cool pair of sunglasses, a sun and some bright yellow gum drops.
