This challenge is a bit different. Use at least one element on an angle. Sounds simple enough, right? I had fun with this one. Anyone who's watched Ren and Stimpy will get a little laugh out of this.

The good ole' HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY song from the show always made me laugh. Yup. Still does at 30-something years old! 

I masked the stripes with some blue tape (I use the stuff you typically use for masking off things for house painting; it's not expensive and has multiple uses and also comes in varying widths) and used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens and my water brush pen. Once I used the heat gun on them to speed up the drying time, I removed the tape and started stamping the happy and smily faces with brown ink and then I used 2 diecuts from the Scripty Joy die and adhered those down. For some sparkle, I added 2 little flowery silver sequins as the dots of the letter "j". I rounded all four corners and used a simple orange speckled paper behind it. 

Here's another look at the card!

I hope you smiled seeing this card today! Please join us over at the Lawnscaping Challenges blog and enter your project for a fab prize from Ellen Hutson. Thanks for stopping by.
