World Card Making Day Challenge - Cartoon Inspired

In honor of World Card Making Day (which was Saturday October 1st - I'm just a few days late), Flourishes is hosting a fun challenge (FLLCWCMD11). Create a card using your favourite cartoon character as inspiration. I chose Donald Duck, one of my favourite cartoons when I was a child, for my colour scheme on this clean and simple card. I used Card Patterns Sketch 135 as my layout inspiration.

Supplies - Card size - 5 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Paper - You Rock (CTMH - retired), Outdoor Denim CS (CTMH), Neenah Solar White CS
Stamps - Mix 'n' Mugs (Flourishes)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Accessories - Bakers twine (May Arts), Buttons (CTMH)
Other - corner rounder


  1. It's a "quacking" card for sure...sorry, couldn't resist! Jx

  2. Wonderful design! You used Donald's colors perfectly, and I love how you used the image from Mix 'n Mugs without the mug! Thanks for joining us for the WCMD challenge!

  3. Fabulous card - love the scoring too!

  4. Simply adorable. Thanks for joining us at Card Patterns this week.

  5. Connie, I absolutely adore this layout and design -- soooo incredibly fun! And the colors courtesy of Donald are just about as perky as it gets!!!

  6. Too cute, love your work, very talented lady, thanks for sharing, Smiles Joanie

  7. I just found your blog. :) And it was from a ribbon tutorial on Pinterest. I see that you are left handed, as am I. I don't suppose you know how to crochet? :) I cannot seem to get past the basic chain. Ha! :)You have a great blog.


Thanks so much for your kind comments, they always make my day.
