I made this card to play along with Merry Monday #55 and Fab Friday #15. I LOVE a tic tac toe challenge, so I couldn't resist playing along. I chose the go straight across the top....
Animal/Designer Paper/ Ribbon. I bought the Come To Bethlehem set before Christmas but never had the chance to make any cards with it. This was my chance. The camels in the image are my animals. My designer paper is from the Well Worn paper pack and I used just a little snippit of ribbon to top off the copper button. I also wanted to play along with Fab Friday because I think I've only participated in one of the challenges over there. I've been an admirer though!
I started by stamping the camel image in Soft Suede and used chalks to add the blue sky and sand. I've seen other cards that added glitter to this image and I knew I wanted to do that too. I think it gives it an extra special look. I stamped and embossed my sentiment in Early Espresso EP and layered the banner. I also bent the banner and gave it a wavy look.
Here's a list of all my supplies....

Paper: Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Well Worn DP, Vanilla
Ink: Soft Suede, VersaMark
