It's Your Birthday, Go Wild!

 Hi crafters!  I just love this cheeky little sloth!! I started with a piece of Pixie Sparkled card from my stash.  I had used Beyond Blue Pixie Sparkles on it, then embossed it with the Pebble Rush embossing folder.  I used a Black Soot Distress Oxide ink around the edges to frame it.  I stamped the Sloth and cut it out with the matching Sloth die.  I used Distress Markers to colour the image (vintage photo, tumbled Glass, antique linen and crushed olive)  I added a piece of white vellum behind the sloth then attached him to the centre of the background.  I stamped the sentiment from the Wild About You clear stamp set, then cut it out and mounted it in the lower corner.  I used leaves from the Tropical Flora die set in the corners as accents.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2"  x  8 1/2" in size.  All for now. Sue x

Good Morning Sue and all.
Another gorgeous Sue and the Sloth card. I believe we all love the little guy with the cheeky smile.
The background is beautiful and the colours are outstanding. I think I will be using this sentiment on one of my Grand Children's cards this year.
Have a good day.

Good morning Sue,
A fabulous card today with your cheeky smiling little sloth who looks really chilled out enjoying his day. Yvonne xx

Ann Topp said...

Good Morning Sue. Awwwww he's/she's lovely. Every time I see this it makes me smile. No matter what background you use ... And boy the backgrounds you have sent us recently have been fabulous.

I don't know about anyone else ... But ... the only thing I am not happy about is the lovely animals name. I don't like the word Sloth it reminds me of something you clean the kitchen floor with ... Is it just me ... Funny how some words just don't fit right. Sorry for the ramble I must be getting like STEPH. LOL. No offence intended Stephanie. Just a bit of fun and banter.
Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today

Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds
