You Make Me Smile

Hello crafty friends,

I'm back with this fun card using the Frantic Stamper Kiki the Koala and ScrapMan Monstera's Leaf dies.

This was an easy card to make, but first... isn't this koala bear the cutest thing ever?  I started the card by die cutting the koala bear from white Strathmore Mixed Media 400 paper (my "go to" paper for almost everything).  I used distressed inks to color it.  Next I die cut several of the leaves and also used distressed inks to colored them.

Once I had all the element ready, I tried different pattern papers and color backgrounds, but ended up using a tropical leaf stencil to give the illusion of more leaves.  I arranged the Koala in the center on foam and surrounded him with the die cut leaves.  The sentiment is by Impression Obsession.

Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.
