SQSC47–Subtle Zoo Review Card

Good morning and welcome to my blog!  Today’s post features a new stampin’ queens sketch challenge featuring the zoo review stamp set and fancy fan embossing folder!   (That is after resisting my first instinct to make a black/white and silver glimmer paper card using today’s design team sketch!)

It’s been so very hot here in North Florida, as it has been in much of the country!  Today’s card colors were chosen to resemble those found at our local zoo… lots of sand, and water!

The fancy fan folder resembles a chain link fence don’t you think?  LOL… when it’s inked lightly with a sahara sand ink pad you’ll get the picture!zoo reveiw, beach colors and teeny tiny wishesWith all that chain link, there had to be something inside the fence so I reached for the Zoo Review stamp set!ink the fancy fan folder with sahara sand inkThe Giraffe, Penguin, and Lion image were colored with markers and punched using various circle punches (and a scallop circle punch too).the porthole created using punches 71112A white gel pen was used to dot around the scallops… and a triple strand of bakers twine was knotted across square lattice embossed sahara sand card stock.bakers twine and square lattice punching with sentiment“Friend to Friend” seemed an appropriate sentiment for today’s challenge card share, LOL… the animals appear to be engaged in some sort of conversation!SQSC47_on_Createdbyu_BlogspotHere’s the sketch for today’s Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge and we’d love to have you play along too!  You know the drill Winking smile.

Very pretty Sharon! You rocked this sketch and I think this was a hard one. I'm always tempted to get this set everytime I see one of your cards you make with it.

I justove zoo animals and I have a BUNCH of stamps, but I usually can't think of anything cute. This is sooo cute I may just have to pull out some of my animals this weekend. Thanks for sharing.
