I am tired of making Christmas cards, so  was glad to see a new challange from Sunny Challenges & Creations. The brief is to use Stampin' Up!'s "Upsy Daisy" stamp set on a project based on this sketch:

As it was the Grey Cup game yesterday, I decided to base my colour choices on our home team's colours – black and orange.  Now I am not a football fan, I felt I had to honour the BC Lion's win!  I brayered my sky with More Mustard, Cajun Craze and then Cranberry Crisp.  I stamped my Upsy Daisy in versamark and then embossed with black embossing powder.  

I didn t have any Cajun Craze ribbon (next time, I ll have to think twice about a colour), so I used a strip of the Cajun Craze DS and punched out a strip in black using the dotted scallop border punch and adhered it to my card.  I think it worked out fine – gives it a masculine feeling.  I added my spiral clip to the top and tied a knotted ribbon to it.

Thanks for the fun challenge!
