Maturing is Optional!

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Being a brand new month it is  time to introduce a new hostess which this time round is Me!!!!

Yesterday was April Fools Day and apparently this month is also National Humor Month. In honor of both these events let's include some Humor in our cards using either a funny sentiment. a humorous image or both.

I love the humor of many of the Art Impressions stamps and I have a fair collection of them so I decided to use one of those for my card today. This one is one of their newer stamp sets called Maturing which is one of their back and front sets. 

I had planned on using the circle spiral pull card for my card but the feel on this maturing group were sticking out from under the circle so I had to go to plan b which was to use the Rectangle Pull Card designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Here is my card when it is "pulled open", you can see the back of the image that I used on the front. I used the speech bubble from the Rectangle Accordion Card die set for the sentiment at the top of the image. I also added another sentiment on the panel on the right.
