Blogger's Challenge #32



How fun this challenge was! We were to use the Happy Birthday layout from the card on the front of the SAB brochure. I knew I did NOT want to do another Valentine or flower card so after searching around a bit I remembered the Moose You set! I really love this set and have only used it a few times so this was it's lucky day! The base of the card is Chocolate Chip followed by Sage Shadow. I pierced holes across the bottom of the Sage card stock and added a branch image in Chocolate Chip. Next is a piece of the retired Wintergreen paper. I so miss this paper the colors are wonderful. The focal image is stamped on Whisper White. I masked off the moose to stamp the trees behind him. I then stamped another moose head and cut it out and popped it up one the main image. I used Sage Shadow, Always Artichoke and Certainly Celery markers to make the ground. The whole image is mounted on Always Artichoke then Chocolate and finally a piece of zig zag cut Certainly Celery is behind it all. Other supplies used were, hodge podge hardware and twill tape along with the Lovely as a Tree set. Hope you enjoy and don't forget to click on the logo on my side bar to see all the other talented stamper's samples with this layout. I'm off to check them out myself. Hope you have a wonderful day --if you live around me try to keep warm, brrrrrrrrrr!!

Y'know, I think that's a darned clever use of both the card "template" and the moose! Absolutely adorable!

And ... I shouldn't rub it in, but ... we're in the mid-60s here in Texas (supposed to be 71 tomorrow). Please don't throw anything at me!!
