Emus and Snails

     New challenge today at QKR Stampede and our theme is "Things with Wings."  As I started looking through QKR images to see what I was going to use, I found a couple of fun emu images (Digi 1301), one of which had a snail in it (digi 1401) and I used just the snail by die cutting him from the overall image.

     I also wanted to use the "I Love Birds" sentiment (Digi 15523 Love Birds.)   The expression on the face of the snail was so adoring I just knew the sentiment had to be his.  That got me to thinking about emus and snails and I realized that emus would probably eat a snail, if they found one!   For the snail's sake, I hope he doesn't know that.  lol


I used colors from the challenge at CRAFT.


     I colored the images with ProMarkers, then cut the emu with a die from Spellbinders and cut just the snail with a die from QuicKutz.  The edges of the octagon are embossed and I inked the edges of both die cuts.  The sentiment is hand cut and also inked on the edges.

     I used two sheer ribbons, one white and one purple (yes, my favorite PURPLE but it turned navy blue in the photo!) to wrap the card front and then tie a large, double bow.
