Happy Birthday Dr. Suess!



Hello everyone! Did you know that on March 2nd it would've been Dr. Seuss's 108th BIRTHDAY!!!! 108! I was amazed when I heard that! My all time favorite book of his is Green Eggs and Ham. I used to read that to my son EVERY DAY! I can still almost recite the entire book from memory after all these years.....my son will be 19 in June! So when I saw the challenge at Twineology I knew I wanted to create something.
I made this card for Twineology's Dr. Seuss's Brithday/ Read Across America challenge. The challenge rules are: 1. Dr. Seuss theme  2. Colors- Auqua, Red, and White,  3. Odd shapes  4. A Dr. Suess quote  5. Bonus- bling  6. Timeless Twine, if you don't own any you can use embroidery floss.
I found the Dr. Seuss image online and printed it and hand cut the odd shaped mats. I added some stickles to his hat and bow and Glossy Accents to the dots. The quote and hat in hand image are from some stickers that I got years ago for scrapbooking our Universal trip. I stuck them to white paper, trimmed around them and added red mats. For the side of the card I used my Sew Easy and embroidery floss to sew the design. I added a button with more embroidery floss and red bling.
I hope you all liked my card and have a wonderful day!
