Today starts our newest challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies and we're honored to have QKR Stampede as our sponsor. Since I'm on the QKR DT as well as the 2CCC DT, I was tickled to have an excuse to share cards that used QKR images two days in a row!
I started with the sketch from C.R.A.F.T. but,
because I was using up dp scraps, my horizontal
strip is wider and a bit shorter than the one in the sketch
and I put my sentiment into a circle.
This adorable little mouse is "Hanging the Star" on the Christmas tree and the sentiment I used is also from QKR Stampede.
I colored the image with ProMarkers, then cut it and the mat for it with simple, circle, dies from Spellbinders. I used additional circle dies from QuicKutz to cut the sentiment and its mat. The Spellbinders set just didn't have any dies that small.
I found my well-worn "Linen" embossing folder and used it on the front of the card base before I wrapped diamond textured ribbon around it and added the hand-tied, sheer ribbon, bow. Both of those ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I added two scraps of dp behind the image, both of which had been inked along the edges. For a final bit of embellishment, I added the three, pale green, pearls to the lower, left corner.
I really want to see you come and play in our "Anything Goes with a Critter" challenge this month. It runs from now until the end of the day on December 25th so there's plenty of time. The DT is taking a well deserved break so you may not get any comments on your entry but the challenge is up and running and we have a delightful sponsor so how can you lose?
Happy Crafting. NanaConnie
