I've finally decided to test the waters, take the plunge and join in on a challenge...So, I went searching and found this site, http://fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com.This will be my first ever entry into any sort of challenge and Im so nervous...kind of feels like the first day of school. You remember the feeling...butterflies, sweaty palms! So here is my card...do you think I got a little carried away on the buttons? Haha.
I just love these guys!
Okay. For this Easel card I used the following cartridges and measurements. Happily Ever After-Jaq/Gus and Spool icon (pg 35), cut at 5 inches. Sweet Treats-hooray (pg 59), cut at 3 inches.
I used the following inks for the edges and shadowing (Im a big inker) on all the images, card base and background...brown, burgandy, coffee brown, navy blue, pink geranium, stem green, terra cotta, sky blue and lady bug red. I also used brown velvet flock for the shoes and glossy accents for the word "hooray" and the mouse features including tails. Along with the button, and ribbon, I put "fashion" cord around the spool to give it a feeling of real thread.
Hopefully this card will make someone smile and like Jaq and Gus...we need to just sometimes let go, enjoy the moment and dance our hearts out! Kathie
