Inkspirations Challenge #28

Hello again - it's Friday and it's Inkspiration Challenge time.  Makeesha has come up with some very different colours for this week - I hope you have fun with them:
Here's my little creation:

I just got one of these cute stamps from Baby Bud Designs - this one is baby Jack - they are so cute! You can find these stamps at Tickled Pink Stamps!  So I've coloured him up with Copic markers.
My base card is white and then I've layered some Choc Chip pattern paper and Elegant Eggplant. 
I've been seeing Sarah-Jane's fabulous cards using the faux suede effect and have been wanting to try it out for myself.  So I did just that - I think it really suits this boy card.  It's a fun technique and I'm quite happy with my first attempt.  And the amazing thing is that it really does feel and look like suede - so cool.
I've added a sentiment using the Amy Rysavy stamps from All That Scraps, some doily trim and buttons to complete the card.
Here's a closer look at the details:

I hope I've inspired you to play along - pop over to Makeesha's website to view all the details of how to join in and be sure to link your card there.  Just by joining in, you could be next weeks guest designer!

HI Chantelle,

you've used the colours this week so well. The sueding of the eggplant is a great touch and your pumpkin framed image looks very cute.
