Stamper's Dream Monthly Challenge

Hi everyone! It's time for the Stamper's Dream monthly challenge....and this month Tosh has a FUN sketch for us. Thanks, Tosh!

You're all welcome to play along! Just make a card following the sketch and using stamps from Stamper's Dream, and then post a link to your project on Michelle's blog....she's going to have a PRIZE for one lucky participant! If you upload to SCS, use SDDC4 in the keywords.



My card is a 5.25" square card. The Penny Black Side by Side stamp is from Stamper's Dream and I stamped it three times so I could layer the chickens and frog (paper tole technique). There's a close-up picture below so you can see the dimension on the card. I got the black and white checkered May Arts Ribbon from Stamper's Dream too.
