Scrapy Land Challenge #71

Hello Blogging Friends,

Today is the start of a new challenge on the Scrapy Land Challenge Blog ~Scrapy Land Challenge #71 and the theme is always ANYTHING GOES using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  We have two winners for every challenge, one picked at random and one picked by the Design Team.  Both Winners will receive a generous $10 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.

Scrapy Land carries over 55 brands of dies, so chances are you have a few of the brands in your stash!  You can see all the brands under the Products catergory.

Please link your entry back to the Scrapy Land Challenge #71 and include the link to this challenge on your blog post.  It would also be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your project.

Here is my card for Scrapy Land Challenge #71:


Poppystamps Weeping Willow Branches die
Poppystamps Galloping Stallion die
Poppystamps Love Balloons dies
Die-Versions Happy Birthday die
Kraft card stock
Assorted paper from my stash
Black ink
White pen
Brown ink
Fossilized Amber distress ink

I made this card for a good friend of mine who has a Birthday Party for her horse every year!  It is always a lot of fun and her horse, Red, gets lots of apples, carrots and gingersnaps!!

Here is a picture of my good friend Marieanne and Red:

To make my card I started with Kraft card stock for the base of the card. I took a piece of patterned paper, inked the edges with brown ink and added that to the card.  I then cut out the different pieces of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Hay There die with different scraps of paper from my stash and added them to the card.  I cut out the Poppystamps Galloping Stallion die, inked the edges with black ink, took my white pen and made a line on his nose to match the Red's blaze and added him to the card.  I took some green paper and cut it out with the Poppystamps Weeping Willow Branches die and I trimmed off some of the branches so it wouldn't block Red.

Now here is the inside of the card:

For the inside of the card I used some more of the patterned paper to cut out the Poppystamps Love Balloons dies. I cut a banner for down the side and then I took some Brown Shimmer paper and cut it out with the Die-Versions Happy Birthday die and then a glued all the pieces down on the inside of the card.
