Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge - Anything Goes

It's Tuesday and I'm back with another card for Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge which is Anything Goes! So I started off using Early Espresso for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I used Basic Grey Collection called 'Senerade' for the rest. I added 2 layers before using a third layer which I ran it thru Tim Holtz's embossing folder called 'Brick & Woodgrain' set. I then ran Teal and Coffee Bean Vivid inks over the embossed areas to highlight. I cut it out using scissors where the edges darted in. I also cut out a tag from the Basic Grey paper called 'Parlor' using Postage scissors by Fiskars and matted this on Early Espresso paper. I then cut a frame using Spellbinders 'Postage Stamps' and again ran it Tim Holtz's embossing folder called 'Brick & Woodgrain' set. I stamped the little boy from the set called 'In Trouble Again' by Paintbox Poppets Collection from Crafter's Companion using black memento ink. I colored this boy using Prismacolor Pencils. I saw this stamp set in Laura' store  and knew I must have it because it  reminds me of my son Cameron who finds trouble or trouble finds him, anyways you can find this set in the store here;
I cut this out using a Marianne Creatables 'Frames & Swirls' and applied Pool Smooch ink to the edges. I added the sentiment using the alphabet stickers from Basic Grey. I added some ribbon and bow by May Arts in the corner.
