scraptasticmondays challenge #3

happy monday! this week over at SM our challenge is to use a fold card , no shaped or a2 type of card AND need to use a die cut and ribbon.  
i made my first pedestal card. these are so easy and fun to make. if you dont know how be sure to go to my side bar and click on marys cardztv link she has an awesome easy to follow video tutorial. thanks mary! 

for my card i used  cindys cute lil pilgrim couple called "happy pilgrims" doesnt cindy make the cutest digis!


i paper pieced the clothing and  used my cuttlebug for the die cut leaves and the label. i used colorbox fluid chalk for color and added distress stickles. i also faux stitched around the card with my singo pen. ( i love this pen!)
i added buttons and used some paper wraphia ribbon. i also put a paper doily behind our happy pilgrims, i thought it gave it an old fashioned thanksgiviney look :)

                                                      heres a sideview of the card. 
 and the sentiment i used my chickenscratch because i adhered the darned paper as i was waiting for my computer generated font to print. dorky me lol i used a light colored pen first then a darker ovver it for a sort of embossed look. it looks better in person. i added distress stickles and rhinestones
thanks so much for stopping by and your comments leave me warm and fuzzy feeling :)  if you havent yet, be sure to check out what the rest of the fab DT have created this week . have a super rest of day :) xxxshelly
