Simply Scent-sational

Ah, the fourth and final day for the Woodland Critter feature over at A Muse News but these little creatures are not going away. Stay tuned next week to Split Coast Stampers and 2 Peas in a Bucket. The Creative Team has been challenged to upload as many projects featuring the Woodland Critters from April 5th - 9th to those to community sites. I would love to have you join us so I am working on a contest right here at A Stampin' Good Time. Be sure to check back on Sunday evening for the details and of course, prizes!
Now onto my card. One of the things that I love about 8 1/2 x 11 paper (beside the fact that is now comes in this yummy watermelon shade) is you can make so many different sizes of cards. My Quickutz flower was too big for a cute little 4-bar, so today I decide to go with the traditional 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card. I loved the way the little skunk looks like he is springing through the flowers. If you look closely you will see that I actually used tiny Easter Egg for my flower blossom and the stems are a partial stamping of seedlings in Memento Bamboo Leaves. The rest of the grass is a MS border punch! I mounted the flower on to Petite Gingham paper in black then attached that to a Watermelon card and added a bit of Black Polka Dot ribbon. It's ALWAYs A Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
