SoSS Challenge #14 - Z is for Zoo

Hooooray for Saturday! The sun is shining and it's the weekend! What could be better??? Why a new challenge from the snarky sisters of course!

This week's challenge is Z is for Zoo , Edna is quite adamant (and you don't want to make her cranky) that you use an animal or animal print on your project.

Visit the SOSS BLOG for all the details on the challenge and to show my snarky sisters some crafty lovin!!

I call my card for this challenge "Ode to Snooki" that girl sure does love her some bling and animal  print! Is that a Jersey thing?? I dunno...

The pretty pink ribbon flower, the chipboard arrow and the lacy blue ribbon were pressies from SISTER CHRIS.

I used heat and stick powder and glass glitter (SU) on the chipboard arrow and pink AND silver sequins (what!!??!!) to up the bling factor.

All that bling called for a sassy sentiment...I think that one works well :)
I heat embossed the sentiment to get a better contrast against the pink zebra print.

Shite I used to make this card:
  • White cardstock (Recollections)
  • Say What You Mean stamp set (Dyan Reaveley)
  • Animal print design paper (in a paper pack I got from Walmart LOL)
  • Versamark and black embossing powder for the sentiment
  • Chipboard arrow, pink ribbon flower & blue lace ribbon (gifts from Sister Chris)
  •  Heat & stick powder
  • Glass glitter (SU)
  • Pink and silver sequins (Joann's)

Want to play along with the Snarky Sisters?? Of course you do! You have until 11:55 pm (EDT) on Friday August 22 to upload your Zoo project to the SOSS BLOG

HeeHee! Gotta say it took me awhile to figure out that was an arrow with all that bling. thought it might be a crusty pair of sassy britches (but I'd just gotten up and hadn't focussed yet. LOL) Great card! Love it! xxD

Oh, golly, I thought that said bitches for a second! That would work, too, for your Jerseyesque pink animal print leggings!! This really is an Ode to Snook ... have you seen her lately? She's gone all respectable and grown up! Hugs, Darnell

It may be Ode to Snooki -- but I like it anyway! Love all the bling and snark combined!

Violent Kittie said...

Love that you called this "Ode to Snooki," even though she did get an Oprah makeover. We know that Snooki still has zebra stripes on her heart.

OMG, Shari's comment with the pig, lol! The blingy arrow is super fabulous, and what suits pink zebra print better than that sentiment???

Love the sassy pants greeting... too much fun. The bling factor is quite high on your card and it is all fabulous!
