Today's Blogger's Challenge was to incorporate animals into you card. I decided to combine it with the challenge on the brand new group I am a part of called Great Swap Girls. The challenge there was to use a layout from the Occasions Mini. So my card uses the layout on page13 of the mini the card with the clock. I made my card into a standard size card though instead of the square because I hat to have brads or anything showing on the inside of the card so I needed one more layer and decided to go full size instead just for a different twist on the layout. Here is the original layout.......
And here is my card. I chose the Happy Hearts Day set for the animal part because it just does not get used enough. So here is my double challenge card.....
I had a real hard time getting a clear picture that showed all the different aspects at once. You will see the details better if you click on the picture to make it bigger. The scallops are 1/2 circle punches that are adhered to the underneath of that layer. There is 1/4 inch score marks on the plain tempting turquoise part. I had fun with this one. If I get a better picture late I will change it -- but you all know how much I hate to do things more than once so the odds are this is it! LOL!
