Wacky Wednesday

Today is wacky because there are two Wednesday sketch ideas for you. My schedule is just wacky all the time this summer! When I stopped by splitcoaststampers last night to see if the sketch was up early, I spied last week's sketch. And it's pretty cool. So I made that one too!
For today's challenge, sc236, I used the Animal Stories elephant as the centerpiece. She is stamped in Melon Mambo and backed with a MM background. The pattern paper layers are part of the Tall Tales designer series paper pack--a neat group of patterns! Adding a petite get well message on the old olive cardstock was the perfect touch. The Teeny Tiny Wishes set has a perfect greeting for nearly every card-giving occasion.
Now the sketch I couldn't pass up is sc235. Circles are fun and with the Stampin' Up! punches, this card went together in a snap. (If you don't already have various sizes of punches I recommend the new tool Circle Scissors because then you can cut LOTS of sizes for less than purchasing 1-1/2 punches).

Party Hearty is the set I chose to get this card started. The base is whisper white folded to 5-1/4" square. Melon Mambo is stamped with the candle in versa-mark for the background. The party hats were stamped on whisper white in rich razzleberry, melon mambo, tempting turqoise, green galore, and then punched randomly. The center circle was stamped in tempting turqoise and rich razzleberry, cut and pieced together. The melon mambo package, glued right in the center makes a nice accent. Using stampin' dimensionals to adhere the center medallion helps it to fit in the smaller space.

Thanks for stopping by today! Tasha
