First I pulled out my newest AE stamps - the Storybook line. Gathered all the precious little critters and created a gathering. Many critters giving many thanks...
This did not turn out as I envisioned it. I really don't like the grass - any suggestions? And the fox appears to be sitting on the mouse's nose! And the strip of PP in the middle? What up with that, eh? Let's just say it is supposed to represent the sky and the sunshine.
The truth? I had two-tone inked and stamped the sentiment with black and coral. Didn't like it. Stamped it just coral on another piece of CS, trimmed and adhered it over the original. Hmmm, the seam bugged me. Searching my tiny strips of PP to put along the seam I discovered this beauty from the top of some 6x6 sheet with that sweet "hello friend" on it. It needed to go on this card. But the hole in the strip - what to do with the hole? Now you know why there's an enamel dot (sun) gracing my card ;)
I'm taking my hoard of critters over to the All Creatures Great and Small challenge at SSS.
So on to a card I'm very happy with.
Creme CS. One stamp (plus a heat embossed sentiment) from Modern Leaves and some masking. Some colorful (Adirondack Ink)blooms and tiny black filler images from Oh Happy Day. One layer. B/W. Colorful. Happy.
I'm taking these flowers over to CAS on Sunday's Challenge #51 - Flowers.
Thanks for coming by.
