Freshly Made Sketches #347 and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes"

Happy Thursday!

Just popping to to showcase a quick card. I have been making my craft room messy again after cleaning it for Charlotte's party. I am trying to use bits and pieces that I have stamped or die cut previously to add to my cards.

The little elephant and the mouse are from Hello Bluebirds "Puddle Play" stamp set. I chose to have the elephant protecting the mouse from the sun, though, instead of using the umbrella for rain. I saw a lot of people using their umbrellas at Disney as parasols!! Such an old fashioned idea!!

I used the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #347 as my inspiration for this card. I flipped the sketch, though and would have used a bigger sun but didn't have the right size die.

I used Distress Ink in *Tumbled Glass,  *Vintage Photo,” and *"Antique Linen" to shade the background. I used the MFT "Stencil Cloud" for the sky. *Copic Markers were used to color in the critters.

The sentiment is from My Favorite Things "More Essential Sentiments" set, which I just received. I think I am going to get a lot of use from this!!

I am also entering this into Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes."

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a FABULOUS afternoon.
