Marcia: Tent Card

This is a tent card that I made for our second July club project!  It just makes me smile when I look at it!  I just love the Hedgehog!!  It actually dangles in the window of this card!  The papers and stamp set are CTMH.  I colored the stamp design with Prisma colored pencils and blending pencil.  The ribbon is from Michael's and the little stones on the scalloped circle are made by The Robins Nest (Paris Day collection).  We had so much fun making them last night!!

I am entering this card into the a Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #68 ice cream color challenge.  I think it reminds me of neopolitan ice cream with hot fudge drizzled all over it!

I am also entering this card into The Pink Elephant #76 color challenge: brown.

Marcia: shabby ribbon card

This is one of the cards I designed for our July stamp club project!  I used CTMH reflections paper pack, Splendor, along with the Hot Diggity stamp set.  The bitty sparkles and bronze bigger brad are also from CTMH.  The adorable ribbon used to make the shabby flower is from Michaels.  I just love the flower, I think it is a perfect addition to this whymsical card!!

I am entering this card into the Paper Sundaes challenge #27
