wild and crazy

Good Friday everyone! I hope your week has gone well! I'm so pleased it is Friday...why you make ask? I get to sleep in a little tomorrow...yay!

I just got this super cute set from limeLIGHT Papercrafts called Wild & Crazy Bunch (Unity Stamp Co.). I thought it was so cute and just knew I had to find a way to use these larger images on a card and I think I did it! I modified an older Sketch For You To Try from iheart2stamp.com. I had to pull out my Marrakech paper from Basic Grey to make this card, too. The base cardstock is Core'dinations Chocolate Box in Blueberry. I colored both of my images with Copic markers. For some reason I've been getting a lot of yucky overlapping in my coloring so please excuse that. I didn't think that with the crazy paper and large sentiment that I needed much for additional decoration so I went with clean and simple AND I like the results!

You can see on the inside of the card I just stamped the alligator from the set on white cardstock...perfect to carry over the clean look of the outside of the card.

This is another one of those cards that I felt myself smiling as I made it.
It is so much fun to make those kinds of cards isn't it?

Alright...I'm going now. I hope you have a fantastic weekend and hopefully I'll see you tomorrow but if now...I'll see you Sunday for my Page Plans sketch card AND the Sweet N Sassy Stamps Round Up card. Lots to look forward to. See you then!
