Here is the card I ended up with:
On to Challenge 7: Nontraditional Valentine. It didn't surprise me when I saw Dixie was sponsoring this challenge. What did surprise me were the hearts on her card! Most of us know of her ambivalent feelings about hearts. It just so happens I didn't use any on my card:
This one was fun for me. I adore the alien with googlie eyes. He is from SU! Make a Monster. Ok, I know, it's supposed to be a monster, but it looks like an alien to me! I wanted to make him pop a little, but with the eyes, I wasn't able to do it. I printed the sentiment out in Word. The patterned paper is BoBunny. This can also be used as a love or miss you card. Don't we love cards that have possible multiple uses?
Over on Sheila's blog is Challenge 7: Take the Scenic Route. This one was hard for me. Most of my stamps don't fall into being able to make a complete scene, but I gave it the old Girl Scout try!
I'm still not completely happy with this card. I think it needs trees in the background, but I don't have any tree stamps and the ones I attempted to draw weren't that great. So I settled for what I had on hand. I could've made a trip to Js or Ms, but that would be way too tempting.
I haven't used this set very often. I got it to scrapbook the pictures from when I was a Girl Scout leader. I honestly don't even know where those pictures are at the moment lol. The set is from SU! and I'm not sure what the name of it is. I colored it all with Copics, cut the images out, and popped up the fire. Since it still needed a little zing, I used black Pearl Pen around two of the corners.
Thanks for taking a peek!
