Wetlands- Happy 55th Birthday!!

Hi Friends!!

I had a chance to stamp today and decided to create a card for my brother (today was his birthday so this card will be late...I hope he does not check my blog and see it before receiving it :-)).  
I decided to use the Mojo Monday 424 Sketch Challenge along with the Nacho Average #168 Color Challenge and the Seize the Birthday 11/19/15 “Anything Goes” Challenge.

 Again, if you have not already visited the above sites, I hope you will take a moment to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

This card is very easy to create:  

Stamp the Canadian goose image using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, mask the goose and create a moon mask with a 1 1/4" Circle Punch (from scrap paper), place the masks over the goose and where you would like your "moon" and use a Sponge Dauber to apply Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink. 

Remove the masks and use an AquaPainterc to soften your sponged area and pulling some of the ink over the moon.

Use an Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker to color the grass and the Big Shot™   with the MFT Stitched Rounded Rectangular Dies to cut out the image and cutting another die from Early Espresso cardstock.

Cut the Early Espresso die cut in half and adhere behind the goose image.

Use the Big Shot™   with the Arrows Textured Impressions™  Emobssing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto Old Olive cardstock, trim and mount onto the Early Espresso card base.

Use the banner punch to create a few banners from retired Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry Designer Series Paper (DSP) and also cut a strip of Old Olive DSP (mount onto Early Espresso cardstock).

Add the vertical Old Olive striped strip and banners to the card front.

Pull the 1 1/2" Burlap Ribbon into threads and adhere behind the goose image area, mount the goose image panel onto the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals®.

Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, punch out with the 2" Circle Punch and create a frame from the 2" Circle Punch from Early Espresso cardstock (cut this frame in half and mount behind the sentiment).

Create the numbers from Early Espresso cardstock using the retired GoGo Boots™  Sizzlets , spray with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and when dry, mount onto a 1 1/4" Punched Circle.

Add the sentiment with the numbers along with the retired Hodgepodge Hardware Clip to finish off the card.

***Optional ****  I felt that the card was a bit too "white" so I applied a bit of Ranger™ Tim Holtz™ Old Paper Distress Ink (plus this helped cover a bit of the glue around the numbers :-))
