C4C260 - Movember Ring Accordion

Good morning friends.

Saturday brings a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges blog.  Our hostess for November is Frances Byrne, and our Guest Designer is Tanya Adams

Frances' challenge this week is "Movember - Let’s Celebrate “Movember” by including a moustache somehow on your cards ... big or small all moustaches are welcome! "  I went with a small moustache, heh.

But let's start at the beginning, shall we?

I used a bunch of Karen Burniston's dies for this card ... mostly because she has come out with these new Frames for the Ring Accordion. You get FOUR different frames in the die set and I've been itching to play with them.

The stars are from her new Happy Birthday Pop Up ... I'm not usually a star person, but I'm trying to embrace them. These got some shimmer using my Wink of Stella pen.  I also added some hand lettering to the panel that shows when the card is closed.

Here is the card open - it's a 3 panel Ring Accordion, with Hoppy the Frog in various positions.  Two are wearing moustaches from Karen B's Props 1. Just for fun you know, because it's Movember. (Click HERE to learn more about Movember).

The centre Hoppy was cut from patterned paper with embedded glitter, and I used scraps of glittered card stock (made using ECD's Silk Microfine Glitter) to cut glittery eye balls.  Glittery Eye Balls - now those are words I don't say very often.

Elizabeth Craft Designs has these new larger word Peel Offs, so I used a Happy Birthday on the back of the centre panel to finish the card off.

The rest of the Crazy4Challenges Design Team is linked on the right side of my blog - be sure to check out what they have come up with for this weeks challenge. We'd love for you to play along too and link your 'Movember' project. If you upload to an online gallery, please use Keywork C4C260.
