Wild For You - Paper Players color challenge {51}

Ohhh wow... Two posts in one day! But I'm loving the color combo for the Paper Players color challenge! I wanted to use a new set from the upcoming new IBC for this challenge, BUT.... I'm still waiting to get some NEW stamp sets from the big brown truck! [I did get a bundle and the new color kit but have to wait until July for my shopping spree of new stuff].  So I grabbed an oldy but goody set "Under the Stars" for this cheery card. First .... here are the fun colors we get to use.
Wild Wasabi, Delightful Daffodil and Melon Mambo.... So cherry and bright! Don't they just make you smile? I sure do and here is my card.
White card base was my starting point to stamp my background scene using all the challenge colors. I inked my title stamp with Stampin' write markers and triple matted with the challenge colors as well.
I stamped the little critters from "Under the Stars" and colored again with write markers. The little raccoon was stamped directly on the front but I cut out the big 'ole bear with snips to give some dimension.
I stamped the flags from the new "Pendant Parade" set and punched the banners with the new petite pendant punch and stamped each flag with a small alphabet letter in early espresso, and finally topped each one with a coat of crystal effects. Then I punch 1/16" holes and threaded with linen thread to hang from the bear's hands. Then popped the bear up with dimensions.
Here's a peek at the inside.
I hope you liked my card.

Diane, this fabulous card had me in stitches! I can't imagine how long this actually took you to create - but it was worth every second!
The inside is as fabulous as the outside.
So glad you shared this with the Paper Players this week
