"Whiff of Joy" Sketch Entry

I heard about this Guest Designer contest over on Whiff of Joy through another blog, KraftinKimmiesKorner here: http://kraftinkimmieskorner.blogspot.com/2008/07/exciting-news-to-share.html and while I generally don't enter Design Team calls (I'm not always very confident that my work is good enough to do this) I decided to give this one a try.  These stamps are just SO CUTE who wouldn't want the chance to work with them!
I thought it was rather funny this morning when I realized that I had used a Skunk image for an entry to "Whiff of Joy" as we all know skunk smell is anything but a whiff of joy!

The sketch was fun and easy to work with.  So here are the details on my card:
Stamps:  Cute Critters (© Clear Dollar Stamps) Aida Cloth Background (Stampin'Up!).
Card Stock: Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango (these are new "in-colors" for SU upcoming catalog year),
Brushed Silver, Shimmery White
Designer Paper from (We R Memory Keepers) Precious Metal Collection
Inks: Palette Noir Black, Copic Markers
Other: Spellbinders Nestabilities Dies (Circles and Rectangles),  Lace Punch (Martha Stewart Line)Grosgrain Ribbon (SU - Retired color),
Old Olive Brads, Felt Flower (Queen and Company), Yellow Spica Glitter Pen (used on flower for some shimmer), Crafter's Tool Kit for distressing edges of card and Foam Mounting Tape.
