Baby Boy- Tammy Scrapin Corner Challenge For the Boys

Hi, Everyone!
Happy Monday!! Today is Monday's challenge at For today the  Challenge is For The Boys! Well remember I saying I have a hard time with boy cards still struggling. Getting a little better. LOL!  Still on training wheels. Anyway  I decided to do a baby boy card with this Sweet Donkey image. How fitting right? Do you know? I could not find any baby boy DP in Grey/Light Blue/Brown. LOL. It was so crazy. I  was hunting the net and of course all the craft stores as well still no luck. Anyway Candy  who is on my Dteam at  was totally shocked as well. It took her a minute but she found some paper online and in a craft store in Michigan. She shipped it to me. I guess I need to go to Michigan huh?? LOL. Thanks so much Candy !
 For my card I  used an digital image by Meljens called Sweet Donkey .  He is cute isn't he?? Smiles. I also did the image in 3D. I learned this technique from Mariska. Of course she does it 100% better than I did she does it so effortlessly. I enjoyed it a-lot. I will be doing it again real soon. It was kinda weird in a strange way. I could not get my Sweet Donkey skin smooth / blended enough. Wasn't for a lack of trying. LOL. This is the first time I  ever colored a donkey. I am going to have to do more homework on this as well. I tried.
