Challenge Cards

I have taken on two challenges with this one card. First is the sketch 47 by Kazan over at 2S4Y . The other is a color challenge #56 from The Pink Elephant. I must also give credit to Maria aka Momo for her video which inspired this peek-a-boo card. Please visit her blog for this and other great videos.

Now for the details on my card. I started with a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of green cardstock (basically a standard 8 1/2" x 11" cut in half portrait style). Next I scored the 11" at 2 3/4" from both the left and the right hand side.

The pattern paper is from DCWV Animal Crackers. I cut two pieces at 2 1/2" x 4" to layer on the front flaps and I cut another piece 5" x 4" to layer on the inside. I used the Doddlecharms cartridge to cut the leaf and shadow at 3 1/4".

The monkey and tree stamps are from Autumn Leaves Mindy's Zoo. The saying is from Inkadinkadoo Just Saying collection. Finally I added the gorgeous ribbon and the flower bauble from my stash of odds and ends.
