I have a cute and whimsical card for you today. I have used the Animal Outing stamp set a few times already and just adore it.  But today I have added the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper to compliment the sentiment from the stamp set.


Animal Outing, 146600


I paired some bright colors for this card.  Truthfully though, they all came from the designer paper.  That is one of the many things I love about Stampin’ Up! and their designer paper.  The paper is so adorable and it takes you out of your normal comfort zone in terms of color.




The only stamping is for the sentiment.  I just like the alligator and the little bird taking the center stage with the sentiment playing along with their silliness.  To give the sentiment a grounding point I pulled the Poppy Parade from the top and left hand birds.  I had to stop myself from trying to add something else onto the banner.  It was really hard to just leave it blank. LOL!!

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return tomorrow for the last of my Blended Seasons cards.  If you have not grabbed up this bundle yet, it is almost gone.  Friday is the last day to order it.  Also, the Bonus Days Coupon goes away on Friday too.  For every $50.00 of merchandise you get a 5.00 coupon to use in September.
