Sometimes.....ya' just gotta LAUGH

The Cuttlebug Challenges blog has provided us with a woodsy creature challenge with a color palette of orange, lime green and turquoise. Additionally, they asked that we use twigs or stones or something else from nature.

Don't you just love the moment in a very frustrating situation when you realize---ya' just gotta laugh!!! I can't wait until such a situation comes up for a friend now because I have just the perfect card for that moment!!!

Recipe:
  • Friendly Forest paper from Colorbok
  • vellum sentiment: Friendly Forest line by Colorbok
  • deckle edged scissors
  • Distress inks by Ranger: Broken China and Dried Marigold
  • Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Distressed Stripes
  • misc orange fiber
  • pop dots and glue dots
  • orange gel pen
  • twigs from outdoors
  • textured turquoise cardstock

I cut out a panel from the Friendly Forest papers w/owl on branch part. Added vellum sentiment; The right side I embossed w/folder and inked over w/Dried Marigold Distress inks; hand wrote two parts of sentiment w/orange gel pen and cut out w/deckle edge scissors; inked edges w/sponge and Broken China Distress ink; adhered w/pop dots; added fibers and twigs to finish it off.
