Sorry I'm So Slow - Color Dare #355

This is my Design Team card for ColorMyHeart Color Dare Challenge #355 using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #328. This was made for my Grand-daughter's 13th Birthday...she loves sloths and when I saw this stamp set it was an immediate purchase.  The goldrush leaf design paper was perfect background for the sloth hanging from the tree branch and the die cut leaf border was perfect for the scalloped edge and was complemented by the green polka-dot design paper. 

The sloth was stamped, cut by the Brother Scan and Cut, colored using Copic Sketch alcohol-based brush pens colors closest to the CTMH colors, adhered with 3D thin foam tape and liquid glass was added to the eyes.  Sentiment was stamped with Espresso ink and NuVo drops placed randomly around the sentiment.  

Another stamp of a sloth was colored and added to the inside right-hand corner of the card and room left for a personal note.  

Please visit each of these challenges to see DT members' inspiration, along with other participants that have entered these challenges and maybe you can combine these challenges too.

So very cute - love the sloth image and the patterned papers you selected to go with it. The leaves in the paper make a perfect setting for the image. The sentiment... how can it get any more appropriate for the slowest animal in the world?

Who can resist a sloth?? Very cute card! I like how you used the leaves as border.

Michelle said...
