Picnic Parade for SCS Wednesday Sketch Challenge

This project almost didn't make it here. It's one of those projects I just couldn't get right. But, my son, George, came out and raved over it (kids are so biased!). So in honor of George I'm posting this card.

I love these little animals in Stampin'Up!s Picnic Parade and have wanted to try it since I got the set. They remind of the characters in Richard Scarry books. This set is available only as a Hostess reward through March 31 so get it while it's still available!

To create the oval frame, I used the inside oval from the Oval Scallop Frame die to mask the center and sponged Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, and a tiny amount of Barely Banana around it.
On the inside I stamped the images in Stazon Black ink and colored them using Earth Element spots and my Blender Pens. I also used a Sponge Dauber to sponge a bit more Bashful Blue and Sahara Sand into the center.
I put my own phrase on the flag and mounted it onto of a piece of Flock Together Designer Series paper, Sahara Sand Card stock and a Whisper White card base.

Don't forget to take advantage of the FREE items during Sale-a-bration which ends March 31. For every $50 in Stampin'Up! Merchandise you will receive a FREE item from the Sale-a-bration catalog. Contact me for more information or shop on-line at my Stampin'Up! website!
