A little Lilac, Lime and a Hee Haw Card!

Two of my favorite colors! Purple and Green, ok I also love the color combo pink and brown. But I also really love purple and green, and that is the challenge for Papertake Weekly this week. Actually it is lilac and lime, but hey that is just names of shades right? Well I decided first off that I really wanted to pull out an older stamp. Something that I haven't used in a while and don't go to right off. I found this Stampin Up Friends stamp. I don't know the real name of it as I purchased it mounted at a sale. I think it is a wonderful, sweet image. I colored it in with my Copics and highlighted with white gel pen and stickles for the rain. I matted it with pop dots on top of DCWV Embossed Nanna's Kids, and then again on a scrap of lime green card stock. The base of the card is a light lilac purple Bazzill, I
used a piece of Diane's Daughters Lime Rickey pattern paper. I wanted it to have a large ribbon, but all I had in may stash was this light weight thin green, I attached a piece of light purple dot on top of it, but it still upset me that when I attached it that it seems so flimsy... (note to self, get some Fancy ribbons! 1000+ ribbon and nothing like I wanted) I added a piece of dark purple card stock that I cut with a spellbinders buckle die, and then embellished with two light green gems. The sentiment is from My Favorite Things. Stitched the edge with my white gel pen.



My second card is just fun! I made it with the Ismaki Sketch, a fun sketch, and knew I needed a birthday card for my step-father. Ok, so I had to pull out a donkey stamp... just for some added fun. I used a white card stock for the base, I layered a piece of grey with a bright red pattern paper, sorry I don't know the maker, it came out of my scraps. I put the card on its point for something a little different, don't know if it works, but that is what I did =) The Donkey is from Whipper Snapper Designs. I collect donkey stamps, purchase everyone I find. This one just really makes me laugh so it is perfect for this card. He is colored with my Copics, and then layered on the same gray card stock. I hand wrote the "Hee Haw", then dotted the edges for a doodle like look. I used some new adhesive metal dots I got at JoAnn's last week, they are pretty neat, might have to get more of them. On the inside I wrote "that is how we say Happy Birthday" I was going to put some kind of donkey pun, but then just went for simple.
