Adventure on the High Seas in Fall!

The countdown is on for the next VSN (Virtual Stamp Night) on SCS which is to be held 7th & 8th September. To get everyone in the VSN spirit every week between now and the weekend of VSN the "Autumn Fairies" will be hosting a special pre VSN challenge.

This weeks pre-challenge was "Let's Jump!" and we were to create a wiper card (aka flip card). What does a wiper card have to do with jumping well if you look at the photo below you will see my little wiper piece which kind of "jumps" when you hold the sides of the card and pull it in and out! With any of the VSN challenges you only have 45 mins to create your card ..... which isn't long ......... many of my cards take a lot longer than that to create ..... anyway this one I kept fairly simple to get it made in the time frame.

I just love my new Ollie & Olivia Owl stamps by Stampendous which I got this week .... I have been having lots of fun with them (some you will see at a later date!) I think out of them all this one is my favorite! I added the photo corner to the top right hand side of the image, that I embellished with some black micro brads .... these are soooo tiny .... but sooo fun!

Stamps: Ollie's Pirates & Ahoy Matey - Stampendous; Rough edges wheel - Stampin' Up
Paper: Real Red & Not Quite Navy - SU; White; Black
Other: Black Ink; Prussian Blue Fluid Chalk; Photo Corner Punch; Black Micro Brads; Charm

I just have to tell you that your card made me run out and buy this stamp, that's how cute this is. I ordered more of these little owls from sassy & sweet and I cant wait!
I would love to see you do more.
