C4C 321 - Down Under Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday, and that means a new challenge on the Crazy4Challenges Blog:  The 26th January was Australia Day, as I live in the "land down under", lets celebrate with a Down Under Challenge. Create a card with something down under, it could be under the sea, or a tree or underground, under an umbrella or even from down under in the world.

I have a mischievous Jinks the Monkey on my card, who is after the slices of birthday cake. Obviously one of the party guests is a little scared of monkeys and is hiding under a bowl (made from the Cup in the Cup Pop Stand set).

I added the slider mechanism from the new Oval Pull Card on this Rectangle Pull Card so when you open it, Jinks slides across the card. You can see how he swapped out the slice of cake with a banana. Ha!

I drew the little banner - the card was made before I discovered how wonderful the Frame Edges for the Ring Accordion worked as banners. Balloons are from the Lucky Birthday Clear Stamps and colouring was done with coloured pencils. The sweet little frame around the words is from the Hanging Charm Pull Tab set.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C321.
