Speedy Fox & Friends 150 - Shape

Hello!!!  Wow what a busy week I've had, how about you?  Crazy how busy life can get sometimes.  I was afraid I might not get this card done in time but it ended up practically making itself once I decided on the shape, but I am getting ahead of myself!  Since it's Saturday that means it time for Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge!  Our challenge this week is to make a card in a different shape.  NO squares or rectangles.  To enter the challenge and to see more fabulous inspiration from my teammates click HERE .

I used the super cute "Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps - Rain Clouds".  I masked off everything but the first two words of the sentiment for the front......

The inside has the rest of the sentiment.  Do you see the stamped weeds in green?  Can you guess what stamp made the weeds?  A tree from "Tree Greetings"!!!

Ok, so I don't know if you noticed how the card opens? I have had a crazy week and I created the front of this card in 15 min. after coming home from one appt. and before heading off to another.   In the midst of this crazy stamping, I glued my scene on at an angle instead of having the opening at the top where clouds and sun are!!!!  Someone is going to receive a wonky card!!!!

I also used the inspiration of the "Ways to Use It" challenge from SCS  WT417, to paper pierce.  I pierced around the cloud on front and made sun rays on the inside with piercing!

This is the stamp set that will be given away to one lucky participant:
