Half a Wonder

First! a reminder to check out my blog candy here: you have until 7 pm EST tonight to comment for a chance to win! I'll post the random number winner Saturday.

The Ways to Use it Challenge on Split Coast was called the Half Baked Challenge - to use half of an image on your card. I stamped Mr. Moose (Amuse stamps) and cut him in half! The theme is kind of 'tongue in cheek' double entendre - the sentiment alluding to the wonders of the holiday season - but with this card it could also be about the hunting season - (poor moosey!) I added metallic skeleton leaves (to cover his missing hiney!) and the sentiment is cut with a spellbinders tag trio die. (and I just thought - I should attach his 'other' half to the back of the card - wouldn't that be a hoot for the recipient!?)

It was kind of a quick card - not having too much time last night to create - so no coloring or much embellishment - but that works for this masculine card anyway I think - don't you??

Thanks for coming by today!

Stamps: Amuse
Paper: Choc Chip, Naturals Ivory: SU, DP Basic Grey Figgy Pudding
Ink: Dark Chocolate: PTI
Accessories: gingham ribbon, spellbinders tag trio die, foam dimensionals, cuttlebug, metallic skeleton leaves.
