It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our challenge hostess for August, Helen Cryer continues to bring us a fun challenge.
For our challenge this week Helen has asked us to use Animals on our cards … Helen would like to see a card with at least one animal on it… except no Bears or Bunnies… let’s see some more unusual animals!
I purchased a number of stamps from Purple Onion Designs way back in May, but due to Design Team work I hadn’t had time to play with any of them …. so for my card this week I decided to pull our my box of Purple Onion Stamps and play!
I just love that Mouse/Dandelion stamp and when I figured out it would work in the Katie Label Accordion designed by Karen Burniston’s for Elizabeth Crafts Designs, I decided to use that for my card. As you can make wishes when you blow a dandelion, I found a birthday greeting that had the word wish in it and also add some flowers and the cute little robin to my other Accordion Panel.
Here is a look at my card from the front when it is closed. I stamped the Mouse and Dandelion twice … once directly onto the Katie Label Panel and then once on scrap card. I cut out the one from scrap card and layered it over the one on the panel so I got the whole Mouse and Dandelion … you can see the ear of the mouse and one of the leaves of the dandelion overlapping.
I have also used the Katie Stars Frame Edge to decorate the frame.
