Ssssending you happinessss

It's Thursday and we've got a new challenge for you over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday. This week's twist - or theme - is to make something with animals or animal prints.  I'm not sure whether snakes are classified as animals or not, but I loved this image from our November sponsor, Oak Pond Creations, and I so wanted to use it. Our twist is always optional, but the use of the twist will earn you an additional chance in the prize draw.

I love these three snakes, they're so cute! I colored them using Promarkers and added the image onto a panel of kraft. I chose papers from Echo Park and Graphic45. I had planned to decorate my card differently and adding a sentiment at the bottom part, but I had a little mishap that resulted in a smear, which I had to cover up with the circle with the sentiment. I've used a stamp from Lily of the Valley - I've got lots of different ones to choose from but decided on "sending you happiness". I've got plenty of ribbons in my stash and don't use them nearly often enough, so I added a bow made of black ribbon for this card. I did try out with pearls and gems in the corners, but decided against it to keep this card "unisex."




This card is also for these challenges:
1) Sweet Stamps - #144 Anything Goes
2) Doodle Pantry - Any Digi Goes
3) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Sssssssure looks good!

I like the masculine colours you chose...that green is great with this black dotted and i like the ribbon and boww. I love ribbon on others bloggers cards, but never can see where to place it when I am making mine!
I heard it gets easier the more you use it.
