This is my Happy Face!

This is card #4 for my April One + 12 card!  This is a very fun, monthly challenge with Kelly and Jeanette to use one stamp only, each month, for one + 12!  For 2020, I am using my Taylored Expressions image called Big Grumpy.  I am able to add one of the coordinating sentiments from the set.  I think he is a hoot!  

This month I went with a stark contrast of black and white patterned paper along black and white cardstock.  I colored big Grumpy with my Copic Sketch Markers and used the matching die to cut him out.  I added one of the sentiments that I think is perfect for what is happening around the world!

Here is the inside of my card:

Please be sure to check out the other One plus Twelve cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's and Kelly's blog.  We are to post on the 3rd, but I had a DT card yesterday, so you might have to check back one day on their blog.  I am sure you will enjoy checking out the one stamp set each of them picked for 2020 and will see a couple of great cards! I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card and that you might too! Be sure to check back every month on the 3rd to see our cards!

LOL! I love that grumpy guy - and his happy face. So fun! And the way you used a predominantly dark color scheme for your card communicates grumpy well.
