Creative Knockouts "Child's Play" Challenge

HI Everyone,

Today I want to share a super FUN card with you. This weeks challenge over at Creative Knockouts is "Child's Play" and we are teaming up with Inky Impressions Digital Images. For anyone who knows me, I do not make many masculine or children's cards. So this was quite the challenge for me in more ways than one ;-). While shopping at Hobby Lobby this week though, I spotted these awesome theme specific papers which totally pulled the theme all together for me. My husband suggested the sentiment which I also knocks this card out of the park. 

Papers from Paper Studio,Su! ticket Punch used in sentiment along with corner shape punch to create the red background for the sentiment. Copic Markers Used:  
R20, 27,29
