Wild Birthday

This is my card for today's Limited Supply Challenge on SCS. The challenge was to make birthday cards with animals, bugs, and/or creepy crawly creatures. So, what's the catch? You have only 45 minutes to make your card.

45 minutes..... Gulp!! Well this is what I came up with so I didn't have time to think of a great layout, so the layout is plain because I spent all my time on the focal point, cutting, cutting, cutting, but I made the time line!

Surprising I can do anything with this darned cold, fever, chill, stuffy head..... YUCK!! I want it to go away! However on the bright side it is a gorgeous day outside and the kiddies are home for a pro D day, so we are picking up hubby from work at lunch and treating him to a lunch at Mickey D's!

All the animals except the giraffe were stamped with versa mark and pastels were used for shading. The giraffe was stamped with Summer sun on Morning Marigold, the spots were punched out and it was matted on dimensionals on top of Close to Cocoa I love this effect. The lion was stamped on So Saffron and I cut out a second main for him in Pumpkin Pie which has a dimensional under it to raise it a bit, the I adhered a So Saffron Face.

Supplies Used: Wild about You, AYC II, Real Red,Pretty in pink, Black, Bashful Blue, Green Galore, Morning Marigold, Sahara Sand, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa card stock, Black, Summer Sun and Vers Mark Inks, Markers, Pastels, Dimensionals, Eyelet punch, Ribbon, Corner Rounder and Birthday hat punches and Balloon Die cuts.

Absolutely adorable! I've got to try shading like that with pastels. They are so vibrant and rich.
