Later Gator!!!

Good day to all my bloggy friends!
I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend. 
I wanted to join in on the fun with this month's challenge over at SVG Cutting Files.
Theme: All about the Boys! 
I used the Postage Stamp Card Base to make an Easel card.
I used yellow distress ink around the edges of my card.
I found the blue polka dot paper from Recollections in my scrap box. 
I wanted to add texture to my die cuts, so I used dainty dots bright cardstock from Bazzill. 
I used googly eyes on my super cute Gator. I mounted the Sun, Gator, & Later Gator (caption) on foam dots for dimension and I added enamel dots.
My card will be going to Send A Smile 4 Kids.
