What's Shakin? Keep it sssssssimple!




 A closer look!
 The sentiment!
 My card!
I would be the first to tell you that I am NOT a snake lover! I don't like them and I avoid them at all costs but when I saw these cute little guys by our lovely sponsor "Oak Pond Creations" I just had to give them a go at coloring. Living in Idaho we are familiar with rattlesnakes although they are not nearly as cute as these three. LOL! Our letter at ABC Challenge is "K" for "Keep It Simple". As you can see keeping it simple is a BIG challenge for me! LOL! The uber fun sentiment is also from "Oak Pond Creations". I added liquid glass to the eyes and fangs of the snakes. For a little sparkle I used a Starlight Spica pen on the diamonds on the the back of the snakes. For a little eye catching interest I dotted liquid pearls around the image and on the sentiment. The buttons finished of my fun card. If you have not been to Oak Pond Creations please check them out as they have some fabulous fun images.
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Bob Fosse
If you would like to cure
The fever called life
Get some relief
From all the struggle and strife
The grandest medicine
That I can propose
Is under your nose
A snake in the grass
If you would like a spot
Where life never goes
Where you can leave your body
Home in your clothes
The finest travel agent
You’ll ever meet
Is right at your feet
A snake in the grass

Another attempt at "Keeping It Simple"
A closer look at my cute image from "Oak Pond Creations"

I also loved these cute little dragon flies. My daughter loves dragon flies and I knew she would love this card.

Love the snakes and sentiment (although I'm not a big snake fan either!), and the dragonflies eyes are great! Thank you for joining Crafty Girls Challenge, hope to see you again very soon.

Beautiful cards Patty Sue. My favourite would be the snakes (even though I'm like you and don't like snakes at all). Love the glossy eyes & fangs and all the liquid pearls. Gorgeous colours on the dragonflies too.

Fabulous cards Patty. Saw your snakes creation over at OPC FB page and had to see what you used for the 'dots' around the snakes. Great idea and awesome look! Love your colours on the dragonflies too
