School Boy Charm

Hello friends.  Happy almost Friday to you!  Hope you've had a great week!

Today I have a card for the new challenge over at Mo's.  The challenge is to add buttons.  I have to tell you...this card started its life in my brain as a baby girl card.  And between my brain and the execution it turned into a cute card with a little boy.  Hmmmm How did that happen??  I don't even know, but I do like the results!
This cute little guy is called Harvard.  I colored him with my Prismacolor pencils.  You can't really tell but I added glossy accents to his glasses.
 So, I won't give you the long winding road my muse took to get from pink, baby girl card to argyle, blue, little boy card but it was an adventure.  I fought her tooth and nail but she won.  And she was right.  It looks great!  That argyle paper has been in my stash for some time.  I only had 2 small pieces left and they were the perfect size for this.  I cut off the top corner and folded the cream paper over to look like a collar.  I sewed all my buttons on.  (always do)
 Here's the inside.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Cupcake Challenge Blog - In Stitches
I Brake For Challenges - Use a Digi

I guess that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek.

Blessings & Hugs,
