What Up?

Happy Tuesday everyone..... I combined several challenges with this card. Splitcoast Stampers colour challenge - Certainly celery, soft suede (close to cocoa), tempting turquoise and the desert option is "crimping", Teapot Tuesday challenge - "Yo! Yo! It's Frizzle, Da Dizzle, Da Teapot Sizzle", Fan club theme - all creatures great and small, technique challenge - inside and out (complete inside of card), StampinB's challenge #52 - make a Funny card, plus I used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch challenge Mojo133.

The rooster image is a rak from Pat Smethers - I love this fun image... I water coloured image with Stampin Up reinkers and cut out image. The base card is 5 x 6 1/2". I matted the leafy green dp (Making Memories) with Stampin Up Tempting Turquoise and Soft Suede. The green dp with run through the Cuttlebug with Divine Swirls folder and then sanded the swirls. I curled the upper right corner on all three pieces of card stock. I cut two smaller ovals from the blue and green Amuse card stock. I then cut the green oval to make the grass area, cut two rectangle Amuse dp panels. Ran the blue and green ovals and squares through the Cuttlebug with Swiss Dot folder and sanded the raised bumps. Cut a strip of Soft Suede for the middle center panel. All edges were sponged and stitched. Crimped the center Soft Suede panel. Matted the two background panels with Tempting Turquoise and Soft Suede. Pierced holes on Tempting Turquoise sections. I cut a green piece of ribbon and a striped piece of ribbon for the center panel. Layered the stripped ribbon over plain green. Sewed the ribbon to the Soft Suede panel. Assembled card. Attached the four leaf punches with mini brads and attached the large "What Up?" sentiment brad.

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy stamping and creating,

Hugs... Pat
