A R T Challenge at SCAD

Finally got back in the craft room to play in the ART Challenge over at SCAD today. 
A= any stamp from SCAD
R= ribbon
T= Two Patterned/Designer papers

Be sure to stop by the SCAD challenge blog to get all the deets amd some inspiration from the DT.

Think I may have gotten a little too far out with this one but it I kinda like the way it turned out.   That's what not being able to craft for a week does to you, all kinds of crazy things come to mind......lol

The stamp is an Elizabeth Bell Stamp from the EB Spring Sampler Set at SCAD is titled Letter To A Friend and colored with Copics.  I added Cinnamon Stickles to her buttons for a touch of shine and Grape stickles to the center of the wee flowers.  The DP is by K&CO and the solid papers are Bazzill.  Tried to accent the colors in the DP yellow, and brown solids.

Cut out a Doily Die from the opposite side of the dp in faintly patterned blue and used a Spellbinders die for the center in yellow, embossed with (I think) vintage embossing folder and sanded the embossing a little.  Then I cut out an oval in Old Olive and covered with Pine and Sage Fine Flower Soft and adhered the cut out image to the little grass patch of grass.  Oh, I almost forgot, that's Fun Fur which you can find in the yarn department of almost any craft store.  It's from a skein that I had left over when we modified flip flops a couple of years ago for a fun look.  You can barely see the doily die for all the yarn...

The coordinating blue pattern paper was cut with an MS border punch, ribbon added above it, a Tim Holtz embellie (thank you Joan), MS Monarch butterfly punch with gold stickles added and the yellow heart sentiment is heat embossed.  Flowers are from WOC with some gold stickles.

Whimsical and fun card to make!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have time to leave me a comment so I be sure and stop by to see what's new with you and on your blog.
Have a very Happy Easter and a wonderful weekend!
"Hugs" Carol

Oh my gosh, Carol--this card is AMAZING! My 11-year old daughter says, "This card is cool!" There are so many elements to this card, and I like how it appears that you sewed that very nice, high-end yard around the scallop, too. The longer I look at this piece, the more I exclaim to my daughter, "Look, I found another piece; look what she did!"
