You Quack Me Up!

Hi, friends, and happy Thursday! :) I'm here to share a card I made that I hope you think is as cute as I do!  In fact, it's for the Cute Card Thursday challenge--Stampin' Mad!  They want to see some sort of stamped image on your creation. :)  Take a gander... (no pun intended, YET!)

Since Great Impressions is sponsoring this challenge, I thought it was only fitting that I showcased some of the stamps that one lucky participant could win!  I started this card by stamping the image, E856 Hello Louie, onto some cardstock and then I colored him in with Spectrum Noir markers.  Isn't he the most darling duck ever?!  

I decided to go with a punny sentiment, so I chose B216 Quack Me Up, and I stamped it and punched it out.  I layered it with some gray card and added it to the image panel.  Some red gingham ribbon was a divider between the image and sentiment.

I then decided to add some punched patterned paper banners to the top left hand corner of the image panel for just a little bit more interest.  A few enamel dots were added to splash a bit more red onto the card.

I then layered the main focal panel onto the card base.  This base had been prepped with some gray card, fun spotted patterned paper, and a doily.  The perfect backdrop for this little guy!

In addition to linking up with Cute Card Thursday, I'm also entering this into the Cards & More "Animals" challenge and the 4 Crafty Chicks "Anything Goes" challenge!  I hope you'll come and play along with all these fun challenges!

That's all for me today!  I hope you find some time to craft today!  If you do, please join the fun with us at Cute Card Thursday!  If you use Great Impressions images, feel free to link them up in our Customer Gallery and for our current challenge if your card is LOVE themed!  HUGS and happy stamping to you all!
