PWCO Ultimate Summer Challenge - Inspiration Day!


Today is Inspiration Day over at PaperWorksCo for their week of the Ultimate Summer Challenge.  I chose to be on the Inspiration Team and the idea is to base your card on an animal of your choice, it must be more inspired than simply the stamp you use, but the overall feel of the card. Specially, the card has to be more than just using the animal stamp. For example, you can look at Zoie the Zebra, and make a card using a zebra stripe pattern, or make a jungle themed card using the Jungle Jesters. The variations are endless.

So I made this fun jungle scene card.  I am so happy with the end result of this.  All the images are coloured in with copics.  The dp is from the Safari Collection pad from DCWV and the big jungle leaves are die cuts from my stash.  I embossed the top panel with a cuttlebug folder and the flowers are Prima.

This card folds flat like a book.  I can't remember where I found the instructions but I ended up having to modify it and create my own.  I will try and remember to do a tutorial on this card at some point as I think it's a really neat effect.  Let me know if you'd be interested in a tutorial.

Well, I am still entertaining visitors and having lots of fun.  Hopefully by the end of the week my schedule will be calming down and I will get a chance to start blog hopping again!  I feel like I've been totally out of the loop lately - please accept my apologies for not visiting you all.  Thanks for visiting and leaving your comments - I really do appreciate them!
