In any case, I hope you like this card as much as I do. It isn't quite typical and is a little bit funky- which is what I strive for often and only occasionally capture. I know that a lot of stampers haven't learned to love these Long Fellows yet, possibly because of their long awkward shape but that's precisely why I love them (and 'cause they're adorable!). I love every card I've made with them so far I think. They provide a great opportunity to get creative with patterns, colors and embellishments.
I totally have a hodgpodge of stuff here. The black/vanilla piece is from the new Newsprint DSP, while the dotted Old Olive is from a, I believe, retired pack called The Write Stuff. My card base is Marina Mist, which is really starting to grow on me... I almost never think of Ballet Blue any more!
Did you notice the tiny scrambled letters stamped behind the bite?? That's a new set called Confetti that I basically designed this whole card around. The "HB" is from an old favorite set, It's Your Birthday.
I added the pinking hearts edge in Cherry Cobler for a bit of bold color which just happens to suit the Friday Free 4 All challenge on Splitcoast to so something to one edge of your card. Of course I couldn't stop there and had to fringe up the edge of the alligator piece and of course a "chomp" from the corner is always a fun touch. I didn't photo the inside but I stamped more of the tiny letters in a row across the middle then stamped a birthday sentiment on top of them.
Have a great day! I've got relatives from Virginia coming in today so I'd better go do some picking up around the house. Thanks for visiting today!
