Operation Write Home Perfect Paper Crafting Blog Skip!

Mornin' hens!  Welcome to the OWH Perfect Paper Crafting Blog Skip!  OMG, this is SO MUCH fun!  And I'm so excited to be a part of such a wonderful project too!

This was a super simple card to put together.  I started with a yellow cardstock base and added the DP that I matted with white cardstock using my Perfect Layers tool! This tool makes PERFECT mats each and every time!  {{Love it!}}  Then I colored the image with my Copics and cut it out with my scalloped rectangle Nestabilities.  But before removing the cut image from the die, I sponged some Momento ink in "Cantaloupe" around the edges.  I folded the ribbon and stapled it to the panel first and then adhered the image over top using a few dimensionals. There ya have it! 

Supplies: Rubber Stamp - SU Wanda's Wit and Wisdom, Perfect Layers; Copics, Ribbon - SU; Nestabilities; Momento  Cantaloupe; DP - My Minds Eye "On the Sunny Side"

Here's the inside:
LOL!  I just love it! 


...and the OWH sketch I followed:
I just flipped it right side up for a "hot dog" fold card!
  

Thanks for stopping by the hen house!  I hope you've enjoyed your visit.  Now it's time to skip on over to Kim's blog!  Wait 'til you see her coloring!  WOWZERS!  Have a great day!
