My Favorite Peeps!

Here's a little something I pulled together for the CAS-ual Friday's Challenge - Let the Hunt Begin and Our Craft Lounge Challenge - Run For the Border

The CAS-ual Fridays challenge was to create a project featuring something you'd find in an Easter Basket.  I have one word for this...Peeps!  :) And by the way...you won't find my card entered in the challenge...because ONCE AGAIN I forgot the deadline was WEDNESDAY and not Thursday!
DUHHH!
Moving on to the OCL challenge...this one was to use border or background images on your card.  I used 2 border stamps...the chicken tracks from the Barnyard Banter set and the the tiny dotted border from the Fancy Fringe set. The dotted border is stamped repeatedly on the red card base with Versamark,  embossed, then dusted with Perfect Pearls. I created a background with the border stamp. 



The sentiment is from the Hey Chick set...one of my favorites! Even if a stamp set is geared for a holiday, I find ways to use them all year long.

If you ever need inspiration to create a card...or any other stamping & paper crafting project...try playing a challenge.  It's a sure way to get your craft on!
