Avery Elle April Guest Designer Challenge Entry One!! =)

Pin It

I have a Fun card to share today using this photo above as my Inspiration!! I am trying out for the Guest Designer spot over on the Avery Elle Blog!! I am new to them and have fallen in LOVE with their FUN style!! I hope you'll join in on the FUN and check out ALL of the AMAZING Inspiration that is entered each month during the Guest Designer Challenge!! You will walk away totally inspired to create!! =)
So as I looked at this photo and it made me think of a Ball Pit (can you tell I have young children!! Ha Ha Ha) with all of those hanging lanterns and playing peek-a-boo!! They also shared this Free Digi Stamp Image and it made me want to use the three images as a design layout!! (you can follow the link above or click on the image to be taken to the site to snag this Free Down Load for your Collection)

So I decided to use the New Rounded Diamonds Stamp and matching Die Set along with the  
What's Up? Stamp Set!! I was going for a FUN Cartoon feel with a POP of color because the photo is mostly black and white with the pop of colors from the lanterns!! So I started by die cutting the card front with my design and then I stamped the Large Diamond Image on the inside of the card with Versa Mark and used some Tattered Rose Distress Embossing Powder by Tim Holtz!! I LOVE the texture it adds and the different flecks of color!! I then stamped the Giraffe Image three times onto white cardstock and then onto a rose colored cardstock. I cut out the images and then just the noses of them!! I wanted to add some dimension so I pop dotted the noses up and then to keep up with the theme I just had to add some wiggle eyes!! On the card front I decided to add the Sentiment What's Up? around each of the die cut openings and I feel it really makes my card come together!!
So here is the finished card!!

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and like I said I hope you'll go and check out the Avery Elle Blog!! Whether you decide to join in on the challenges or go just for INSPIRATION I know you'll LOVE you visit!! Have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)
