Shape Card w/Ribbon.......{3GJ Challenge #21}

Good Morning Bloggers!!
It is a happy day over here....
I am hosting the new challenge over at the
this week's challenge is~ 
Shape Cards w/Ribbon
This week's challenge will be open for 2 weeks, July 5th~ July 18th so plenty of time to create and share!!

Our challenge is being sponsored by
our own....

Any three colors of skittles (75 total)

3 Girl JAM
with a $10 Gift Certificate to  3GJ
and a Guest Designer Spot
Awesome prizes for sure!!

So here is the card I made....
I took the Peachy Keen Stamps Sketch for this week
and rotated it. Also instead of using a circle shape as my base I made it a bracket shaped card (Hope that is alright for the challenge )
So here is my fun birthday card for my nephew who LOVES tractors. I thought he would get a kick out of this one :)
So I started out with a bracket shaped card base that I picked up from the Silhouette store and added a few layers of designer papers from my stash in blue for the sky and green for the ground. Then using another file from the Silhouette store I cut the cute tractor and added my PK face to the little boy. This is so how my nephew looks when he comes to our house and rides the tractor with my husband. Seeing that the "scene" needed something else, I stamped the adorable corn stalk, also from PKS, colored it with my copic markers and then cut the whole stamp out to glue to the card mat. After added some white pen doodles and popping the tractor up for added dimension I went to work on the sun.

I wanted to do something different with my ribbon...other than tying it in a bow so I thought the sunflower crinkle ribbon would look so fun as the sun rays coming out of the sun. I cut a bunch of strips of ribbon and then cut them in half. To give them the fluff (how I described it to my husband..LOL) I pulled apart the fray a bit more to fill out the sun but still show some separate pieces. I think it turned out pretty cute.....
What do you think???

I sure hope you have enjoyed my project and will play along with us over at the
