A Spoonful of Sugar makes ... blue & green!

(Please scroll down for my Totally Ladybug Tuesday post!)

This week's challenge at A Spoonful of Sugar is "blue & green should never be seen"!  And it's sponsored by that lovely Nikki of Bunny Zoe's Crafts - so lots of yummy goodies to be had!  When I first saw the challenge, I kept thinking about the green - a colour not often used by me - and ... don't ask me why ... I thought of aliens!  No, I haven't met any personally!  So I just had to get my Willy out - he's called Willy One Eye, but isn't that a little rude?!!  Well, Steve and I had a chuckle anyway!   [Apologies in advance if I've offended anyone out there!]

Okay, onto the card before I get any more complaints flooding in...

 
 


Sorry for the rather awful photos - it's so grey here in the UK and I couldn't do anything to improve the photo!  But aren't those High Hope Dustin Pike images fun!  You can buy Willy One Eye {{giggle}} here.  I'm not 100% convinced about the positioning of that ribbon though - and how will I fit it in the envelope, lol?!!  Oh well, I will MAKE it fit!


Don't forget to hop over to see the other DT inspiration here - their usual tip top quality!




I am entering this card into the following challenges...

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper pack

Willy One Eye made me laugh out loud and I really neeeded cheering up today. I love your card, the bubbly background is gorgeous, the image so adorable and I really like the unusual positioning of the ribbon.
