Card I am going to submit with Julie at for the July challenge "A Smiling Sparkling Sun"
A2 size card: 4 1/4   X  5 1/2

Paper:  From my paper stash
Crocs Rule and Doodlecharms cricut cartridges
Inks:  Black StazOn, Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass) and Color Box ink(Dune) (Chestnut Roan)
Foam Tape
Viva Decor Pearl Pen(Red)

I cut the croc and tree from the Crocs Rule cartridge at 3 inches in brown cardstock. I then cut the tree and croc layer in green cardstock. I used the Tiny Bubbles cuttlebug folder to emboss the crocodile and inked around all edges with Chestnut Roan ink from Color Box. To get the red dotted blanket that he is sitting on I just cut the whole image again in that red dotted paper and then just cut out the blanket part to fit by hand.I inked the bottom of card with Color Box ink(Dune) and the top part of card with the Tim Holtz Distress Ink(Tumbled Glass) The sun was cut from the Doodlecharms cartridge at 2 1/2 " in a yellow cardstock. I stamped a peachy keen face from the Basic paper doll assortment stamp set with Black StazOn ink and  and I used Crystal stickles on the sun also. The tree and croc image is on one thickness of foam tape and the sun is on two thickness of foam tape. Typed "Relax" on my computer and inked around edges with Chestnut Roan ink. I put three dots behind "Relax" with Viva Decor Pearl Pen (Red)
