SAS4Kids: AG or Funny Cards 4 Kids

Hi, everyone! Happy Saturday! Since it's the first Saturday of the month, it's time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids Challenge!!!

This month, it's an Anything Goes challenge. That's right... any kiddie card can be linked up to play along with us.

For my card, I decided to feature three adorable Mama Elephant bunnies... holding up birthday greetings for a sweet little one in need of some special birthday love.

Strathmore watercolor paper; Stampin' Up! stash dp
Mam Elephant stamp-and-die mini set featuring two of its three amigos critters
background: broken china, peacock feathers, fossilized amber, fired brick Oxides, with a spattering of black soot
MFT grassy field, Paper Smooches tiny heart, and Spellbinders circle dies; tiny circles: various SU pnnches
MFT mini cloud and Simon Says falling hearts stencils
bunny accents: Prismacolor pencils and Wink of Stella

A few thoughts about this card:

  • For starters, I'm pretty happy with the overall design...
  • ... and I'm head over hills about the watercolor-wash Distress rainbow background...
  • ... and I couldn't be more thrilled with the little bunnies.
  • Speaking of the bunnies...
    • They were first stamped on notebook-paper dp, the sentiments were added, and the signs were fussy-cut out.
    • Next, the bunnies were stamped on yellow-striped dp and were fussy-cut out. The signs were attached to the these dp cut-out bunnies.
    • Lastly, they were stamped on watercolor paper. The yellow-striped bunnies were attached to the watercolor bunnies.
  • If this weren't going to a little one in a children's hospital, I would have added some pretty sequins. Instead, I added some Wink of Stella glitter to some Distress paper and punched out 9 circular and 1 heart embellishment.
  • My one regret -- there's got to be at least one... right? I really wish the stenciled clouds behind each bunny would've shown up a lot more. Guess I used too light of a hand on those.

Hope you'll stop by SAS4Kids to check out the rest of the DT cards... and then stop back by to link up a card of your very own.  :)

Parting Thoughts

Have you heard about the big birthday bash going on at CAS-ual Fridays? Michele and her gals are celebrating 8 years and 200 challenges!!!! So, I'm going to share these little critters over at the current CAS-ual Fridays Birthday Celebration Challenge.   :)

And there's an Anything Goes Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp. Think I'll link these little ones up there, too.

While we're speaking of challenges, there's a little more time to play along with us at Words 2 Craft By. Our current challenge is open through Wednesday.

Have a great weekend! Until next time, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
