"Be Funny" with Unstampabelles.

Well it's still hot and sticky here in Cyprus but then we are in the hottest month of the year. But here comes September and the days will be getting cooler but not too cool I hear my visitors say. My son arrives this week so he's looking forward to lots of sunshine and lazy days by and in the pool. I'm looking forward to my hugs!!

Anyway on to this months card at Unstampabelles. Susan challenged us to "Be Funny" and the twist is to frame it. I found a cute, fun image for a Christmas card.

Yep!! They've lost Santa!! That reindeer looks like he couldn't care less but the penguin is pacing about like a pregnant father!!

The card was readymade silver card with an oblong aperture. This was so crying out to me to make a frame for it. I placed navy blue card stock behind and placed the scene centrally on it. Then I decoupaged the reindeer and penguin and put them outside of the frame.
I put silver stars down both sides to emphasise the frame. Then cut two strips of the same card to place at each side of the whole thing. This was edged with silver peel off wavy lines.

So  this is a cute, fun card ready for the Christmas box which is slowly get bigger! I hope you've been inspired and tempted to take a peek at in the side bar.The challenge is to make a funny card and the twist is Frame It!! Also you mustn't use stamps of any description on your entry. It is UNstampabelles after all.
