Kangaroo Birthday - Stampin' Up! Kangaroo & Comapny - Fab Friday 207

   Whew!  Well we made through another week stampers!  It's Friday and time for a new Fab Friday challenge.  It's perfect if you'll be stuck inside this weekend due to bad weather and let's face it, there aren't that many places to go anymore these days!  Might as well stamp along with us at Fab Friday with a fun sketch challenge!

  What are you going to do with that lovely, open panel?  Here's what I came up with!

  I decided to focus a bit on some smaller images from the Kangaroo & Company.  It's easy to use the big kangaroo but I didn't want the little guy and the butterfly to get lost and figured they would look good together.  He's so cute looking up at the butterflies in the sky!

  The card base is Whisper White thick covered in a piece of Ice Cream Corner DSP in a cute Terracotta Tile scallop pattern.

  I added a bit more scallops in the way of a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle for the base of my images and backed it with a Gray Granite panel.  

 The kangaroo and butterflies are stamped in Memento Black and then colored.  For the kangaroo I used Gray Granite light, Ivory and Calypso Coral light Blends.  The butterflies are colored with regular Stampin' Write markers in Terracotta Tile, Gray Granite, Blushing Bride and Bumblebee.  Once they were all cut out I arranged the kangaroo on top of the sentiment flags and popped him with dimensionals.  The butterflies are popped on dimensionals around some stamped hearts.

  For embellishments I added a tiny Blushing Bride baker's twine bow to the 'roo and then scattered little dots/gems around the sentiment.  After looking at it for a while I'm thinking I've got just too many little bits of things and it's a bit busy. Oh well, it is what it is!

  Check out the Fab Friday Design Team inspiration and then join in!
