Pun Fun Week Day #6 - BONUS!

I wanted to use this stamp in the Pun Fun set, eventhough I couldn't come up with anything Valentine with it.  This image naturally lends itself to a boy card, in my opinion.  So I wanted some boy colors.  I came upon this color combination at Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge.  I love having all the colors a color challenge calls for.  I'm starting to build my collection with Stamin' Up!'s cardstock.  I really like these color cardstock.  They're made nice and sturdy.  And of course, you can't beat the color coordination with SU!'s colors.  I am just shocked at how well these colors go together.

I also used Sweet Sunday's sketch as inspiration.

OK, so I started off really trying to do the challenge adhering to the sketch.  However, it kind of took on its own life...

I started with using a Sizzix Bigz die that can make a scallop card.
I had these Top Note Die-like cutouts with my Cricut lying on my desk (eh, dining table).  So I thought I'd cut another one, smaller, with the DSP, and use the white as mat.  I used markers to color the image.

My Supplies List (all supplies and images by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp Set(s): Pun Fun
Ink: Early Espresso
Papers: Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, Real Red
Accessories: Scallop Trim Edge Punch, Scallop Card Sizzix Bigz die (non-SU), embossing folder (non-SU), Crystal Effects (on card 1)

Your card is really cute - nice colors! It would be a good birthday card to make for my Gr. 1 boys. I am now following from SC.
