Why Hello...



Happy Thursday everyone.  Today's project comes to you courtesy of the Just A Scrappin' design team challenge.  This week's challenge puts the spotlight on animals, embossing and buttons.  We were allowed to chose any animal we desired so long as we included 3 buttons and some embossing on our project.

For my card I used:

Mickey and Friends for the flower (embossed with swiss dots)

George was used to create the holes on my flower for easier threading of the ribbon

Paper Doll Dress Up for the fox's hat

Zooballoo for the fox dressed up with her little scarf made of eyelash yarn

I had originally designed this card three years ago so I had a lot of fun re-making it.  I don't know about you but I tend to save 99% of the designs I've ever made just so that I can go back and re-create them if I wish.  It can be a lot of fun to see how the styles change over the years as you learn new techniques and add new tools to your arsenal.

But I digress.  Now that you've seen my take on the animal challenge be sure to hop on over to Just A Scrappin to check out the other great designs made by our team.  Then after you've been amply inspired create your own project, link up and play along with us.

I really love your use of color. I also really like that you combined a lot of different carts to come to your final product.

TFS,

The eyelash yarn was such a great idea. It really adds that somethin' special to the card.
