{MTSC57 & CCCC: Act 13} Thank Ewe! Pun Fun!

Can EWE tell I had FUN making this card?   EWE bet I did!  :D

The bright and HAPPY colors in this creation are from the Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 13.  And the super sketch design is from the mega talented Mercy Kerin from Lord Have Mercy fame!  Oh how I *heart* these challenges!

I don't recall the last time I used Liquid Applique, but it's been so long that I was sure my bottle would be dried up.  Luckily, it was as good as new and worked perfectly to create a fluffy white coat on my little Stampin' Up! "Pun Fun" EWE!   I forgot how much FUN this stuff is to work with and love watching it puff up as it's heated.  :)

This is a standard 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" card with basic black cardstock as the base.  The pink passion piece on the top was embossed with the polka dots and the other layers were stitched together.   The Stampin' Up! Flower Fusion felt flowers were the perfect embellishment, along with some pink polka dot ribbon!

Remember, you're all invited to play along in these terrific challenges!

SO cute, Pam! Is your alphabet panel stamped or some cute DP? Inquiring minds want to know!

Pam Speidel said...

Thank you all for the SWEET comments! As for the alphabet panel, it is an old designer paper from my stash. I wanted something black and white and tried a few different options before settling on it. I looked on the back and it says KI Memories 2006 – Unconditional Tiny Type.
