Grungy Lizard

This is the second card all of the ladies got to make at my Launch Party:

And this is the reason I changed the colour scheme for my other card. I originally made this one in blues and browns but it just wasn't working for me, so I moved to brighter colours - I am loving Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Strawberry Slush together, so I went with that.

I've used 2 of my favourite new stamp sets on this card - Gorgeous Grunge (you're going to be seeing a LOT more of this one from me!) and Tag It. Tag It is the Ronald McDonald House Charity set. I'm so happy that Australia now gets to be part of Stampin' Up!'s sponsorship of this charity. $3 from each set sold will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities. To date, Stampin' Up! have donated over US$1 million to RMHC. It's great that we can now be part of that.

A few little tips if you'd like to recreate this card:
* I made my banner piece 3.5cm wide. This is the length of the diagonal of the square punch. That makes it really easy to insert into the punch and make the "V" shape.
* The Crushed Curry "brackets" are made using the Decorative Label punch, cut in half lengthways.
* the coloured balloons are made using the striped stamps in the Gorgeous Grunge set, punched out with the 1/2" and Itty Bitty Circle.
