DT Post for Mo's Feeling Blue # 96

Well, it's my turn to host again, and since blue is my favorite color, I decided that blue it is for this weeks challenge. This adorable little boy isn't feeling that good and needs his Mummy real bad. He's from Mo's Digital Pencil and you can find him HERE So why not play along,and while your at it, please visit my DT sistah's blogs for some real inspiration. They are such a talented bunch, I know they would love hearing from you. If you look you can find the upcoming challenges making it easier for you to play along. We have so many fun projects and themes coming up. I hope you can play along.

here is the card closed:

Look at that adorable face isn't he perfect for a get well card. As soon as I saw him, I had to have him. I made this for my friends son who wasn't feeling well a few weeks ago. And yes, it did cheer him up. As I said in an earlier post, I revisited Splitcoast Stampers and tried something new. This is called a Diamond Fold Card and you can find the directions and video tutorial HERE. It was one of the easiest cards to fold and make. Well put it this way since I am a visual person, the video helped a So here goes my take of the Diamond Fold Card. Hope I can inspire someone. Happy Folding!!!

Debbie, Love your card with this cute little guy! Great fold!
To answer your question about the towel, the effect is achieved by using several related colors of Copics and just dotting the image. I also used a few dots of white gel pen.
