I have a very fun card to show today. The challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil this week is to use your favorite image with a sentiment (mine is on the inside - truly it is! My computer won't upload my image of the inside of my card). This was a tough challenge for me because at least half of her images are my "favorite". But, considering the season, I decided to use this cute little guy, called Punkin.
I used papers from a K&Co. pad by Susan Winget called Nature. The green panel is embossed with a great Spellbinders Impressabilities embossing sheet called Flowers. The flower is from Wild Orchid and the other supplies are from my stash.
I added a box for a candy bar to the bottom of my card. I saw the idea on a blog, but couldn't find a tutorial so I made up my own. It turned out pretty good and it even fits inside the clear envelopes I use to mail my cards! I will certainly be making more of these!
I am challenging myself to use up my scraps of lace and ribbon that have been around for years. This piece of last was just the right size... I guess it was waiting for this card! The ribbons have been hanging around a while too. When my stash gets down a bit more I plan to buy some great ribbons from some of the new companies I have found on-line. Guess I better get busy using this stuff!
I colored Punkin with my new Prismacolor pencils. I think he turned out pretty good. I'm still working on getting skin right, though. I edged the panel with gold Stickles. Gotta love that stuff!
