Sandra and Deb Challenge

This was supposed to be two cards for the Papertrey Ink Bloghop Challenge.  What I forgot though is that this is a one day challenge with that day being yesterday!  Oh well, it is now just a Sandra and I Challenge.

Here is the inspiration photo:


Here is my card:


It is fairly obvious that I was inspired by the colour scheme and the bottle brush trees.  I have to tell you that originally I had the penguin placed between the bear and the fox, but Sandra told me that it looked like the fox was farting on the penguin.  Well of course, I had to change things up a bit.

Now here is Sandra’s card using the same inspiration photo.  You will note that no one is farting on anyone else, BUT there is a giant icicle about to fall down and kill the bear!  Just saying!


Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Joyful Christmas and Warmest Wishes stamp set, Impression Obsession icicle.  Sandra’s card is coloured with Copic Markers while mine is coloured with my super sized set of Prismacolor pencils that I got for Christmas and Gamsol.

This Post is a little Sketchy Too!

Sandra also participated in the Wplus9 Sketch challenge and I suspect did not agonize over card fronts as much as I did.  This is because working woman’s (Sandra) only available time slot to make this card was 1:30 AM and that probably prompted her to be efficient.  Anyway, here is the sketch again followed by Sandra’s entry.
