The thing that's great about crafters' blogs is that you can find so many things to inspire you to go beyond the basics of card making. One of the reasons I love Craftypagan Designs is that she uses different elements to bring out the beauty of her cards. I didn't have an animal stamp for her challenge so I used a Cricut(c) image instead. I scissor distressed the edges of the brown scrap and ink distressed the green scrap. Tying jute around the green paper gives it a bit of a creative edge and keeps "Woof" from howling of boredom. Adding brads help to bring out the green in the card. Notice that I used designer cardstock which made my crafting easier.
Rowena (Craftypagan Designs) encouraged me to enter my card into the Stamp Something Challenge - how awesome was that? Thanks for the encouragement!
