Round 2 of the Gauntlet

Last week I moved on to round 2 of the Gauntlet at the Scrapperie. The challenge was to make a card in a different shape other than a square or rectangle. So this is what I made. :)

CS - whisper white SU!
PP - ??
ribbon - walmart
button - walmart
stazon black
SU! watercolor pencils
SU! ruby red ink
catseye chesnut roan
catseye charcoal
Alpha stamps - walmart
SU! a little birdie told me stamp set
pop dots
glue dots

I cut the apple out and then inked it in red and the stem in chesnut roan. I inked the edges of the apple and the little pieces of PP in charcoal. I adheared the PP and then the ribbon. I cut a piece of whisper white CS from a scrap and made lines with a ruler using SU! watercolor pencils. Then I used stazon and spelled out teacher with alpha stamps as well as the 'you're the best!' stamp.

Cute card! I love it. Lucky will the teacher that gets this one!

I finally finished my little booklet about our "Mini-Moon". I posted pictures on my blog. I don't know how happy I am with it, though. Well...I know I'm happy I FINISHED it (lol), but I think I'm ready to do some 12x12 pages again. I've spent too long doing the little books now. I need variety, I guess. ha
