Wishbone Ants


Hi everyone! Today I'm excited to preview the Wishbone Ants digital stamp set that is being given as our complimentary gift for playing along in the Doodle Pantry Challenge starting today. You may get the stamp set free by playing along in our challenge or wait until November 25th to buy it. Both the sentiment and image featured on today's card are from the Wishbone Ants digital stamp set by Doodle Pantry.


My card base is More Mustard layered with White Cardstock then four squares of Fall Stripe patterned paper each stitched around the edges. The shadow strips are Ripe Avocado finished on both sides using the Scallop Edge Punch. Next I wrapped a strip of More Mustard Grosgrain Ribbon around each strip of Ripe Avocado and made a matching bow for the front.

The image and sentiment are printed on White Cardstock and the image colored using copic markers. I paper pierced around the edges then layered the image on More Mustard. To embellish the card I added dew drops in each corner of the card base and a couple along the top of the image.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
