Critter Challenge #14

This weeks Critter Challenge is a sketch only challenge. It's still May, so the challenge is being sponsored by Doodle Dragon Studios.

Here is the sketch



Here is my take on the sketch.



I flipped it 90 degrees. One of my cousin's wife just had her second baby. My cousin likes VWs so I really wanted to use the Papertrey Ink Enjoy the Ride stamp set and corresponding Die for a card for the young family. I love the vintage look of the Lullaby Lane Webster Pages. I wanted to make sure you could see the fun detail of the paper. Mainly, I wanted to highlight the pram on the bottom lower right. The middle piece of paper has really cute nursury/ children toys. I love the train, rocking horse, tricycle and ducks. The base square of the car is cream and white alphabet blocks. I used the Ric Rac Die from Papertrey Ink to cut vintage cream felt, also from Papertrey Ink. Let me tell you, the felt is so soft and the die cut it so beautifully. It was like a hot knife cutting butter! Finally, I stitched some Basic Grey Buttons onto the card with SU Linen Thread.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink: Enjoy the Ride
Ink: SU Baja Breeze, Soft Suede
Cardstock: SU Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss
Paper: Webster Pages Lullaby Lane
Accessories: Papertrey Ink Ric Rac Die, Enjoy the Ride Die, Papertrey Ink felt, Basic Grey Buttons, SU Linen Thread
