Another card for PPA 57

I liked the sketch so much over at Pals Paper Arts that I wanted to make another card with it. 


Stamps:  Ladybug Picnic, sentiment by Stampabilities
Paper:  White, Black, Taken with Teal, Cool Caribbean
Ink:  Black
Accessories:  Prisma and Stampin' Up markers, eyelets (non-SU), Cuttlebug Houndtooth embossing folder, stamp-a-ma-jig

The inside of the card finishes the sentiment with "to say hi!"  I stamped the kite on Taken with Teal and ran it through the CB Houndtooth embossing folder for some texture. Then I cut it out and glued it to the card for added dimension.  Little details can go a long way.  My crop-a-dile slipped while I was punching holes for the eyelets so that added a crooked eyelet.  That gives this card character and that goes a long way too.

I've been trying to use up some of my old cardstock, hence the colors on this card.  I figured retired cardstock goes great with retired stamps. 

I wanted to show off  my helper today.  Banjee was right there while trying to take some pictures.  How can you resist a face like that looking at you?

I hope you have a great day!

thanks for your sweet comment!

Love the photo of your little helper, I've got two of them but they are quite a bit smaller since they are Yorkies. Have a blessed week!
