Sassy Cheryl's Blog Hop Challenge

Sassy Cheryl is celebrating ONE FULL YEAR of challenges with Pearls, Satin and a Blog Hop!  Stop on over to join in the fun.

I call this card "You Quack Me Up" and entering it in this weeks challenge Pearls & Satin.   What's a duck to do if he's not sporting his Pearls and Satin.  I used Sassy Cheryl's precolored image called "Duck Dance".

Card size is 5" x 5", mounted the image on a scalloped medallion cut with a Nestabilities.  Embellished the medallion with tiny pearls, added a greeting, flower and pearl popped up on satin ribbon.  I just needed to use "You Quack Me Up" as the sentiment for the front of the card.

Now for the truth, after I finished the entire card and ready to take pictures, I realized that I have the stripe decorative paper going the wrong, I wanted the stripes to be going up and down.  To late now, better luck next time, I say.

Sentiment inside reads:
happy easter, happy spring,
happy, happy everything!

Cardstock from Papertrey Ink and Stampin Up.  Decorative paper K & Co., pearls SU, ribbon is from my stash.
