Love Roo!

Hello there! I have a happy little card to share today that will [hopefully] bring a smile to your face on this Wednesday morning:)

While being totally constructive and not wasting any time by surfing around on some of my favorite stamp sites...I stumbled across the newest Paper Smooches Sparks challenge.  And, yep---I was inspired by this photo to play along:
Cute, ugh?  Might have to try to make some of those!  You can find all the challenge details on the Paper Smooches Sparks blog:


Here is my take on the inspiration photo:

Here is a close-up of the kangaroo. (My son told me that I did an ok job on it :) hee!

Supplies:
Stamps- A Little Lovin, Houndstooth, Geo Graphic (Paper Smooches); cardstock- white (Gina K Designs); patterned paper- Wayfarer mini print (Bazzill Basics Paper); Dies- cloud trio, fresh cut grass (Die-namics, My Favorite Things); baker's twine-blossom (The Twinery); ink-Memento tuxedo black, orchid pastel, yellow citrus, blue lagoon (Cat's Eye Chalk ink- Colorbok); Copic markers; felt- Chartruse (Papertrey Ink); sewing machine; Zapdots (Helmar); ribbon- chevron blue (May Arts).

I was inspired by the fun colors and textures in the photo and I wanted to make a spring-ish card because of the bunnies.  I decided to use the kangaroo and sentiment from A Little Lovin (cause I love them!) and built a Spring scene using them.

I incorporated some felt to get the texture in from the inspiration picture.  I stitched along the felt grass to get some stitching in there too.

I used some of the colors  from the bunny's ears on the card by stamping background designs (Geo Graphic, Houndstooth) on the die-cut clouds.

What a fun challenge!  But, don't take my word for it --------> Click on the Paper Smooches logo to play along!

Thanks for stopping by!
