Emmett and Schmoo Schmoo :)

I found this cute little boy with a stuffed bunny digi-image on Squigglefly way back in March and it was perfect for my grandson Emmett's 8th birthday (9/6)-It's called Noah and Bandit, but I think it looks just like Emmett (right down to the big smile that makes his eyes disappear) and his best friend- Schmoo Schmoo, who keeps him company in bed at night (Thanks Holly, for all the help getting this image to work for me!)!

I printed the image on ultra smooth white card stock and colored it with Copic markers. Since Emmett played his first year in Little League (Minors), and his team did an awesome job (They won their play-offs) I colored his hat in the team colors, and the rabbit is colored like Schmooey. I cut the image and a green background mat out with Spellbinders Labels 4.  I lightly sponged some TH Vintage Photo distress ink around the image while it was still in the die.  I added some scraps of fall colored papers (from my scrap box). For the sentiment I stamped letters on scraps of bright cardstock and punched with EK 1/2" punch. 
He liked the card, but he liked the gift more. Sad thing is the super cool remote control car that he so loved DID NOT WORK! And I am so bummed, because I had bought the same one for his brother, who's BD is in November, and it didn't work either. So now I have to take them back and find them both something different. NO wonder they were on clearance. I'm sure others have been brought back, too.
