Hump Day!

This is a card using another awesome Doodle Pantry image and sentiment from the set called Camel Fun. Isn't this camel adorable? There are lots of digital papers and sentiments with this set. Here is a picture of what you get:

All of the paper used on this card is from Stampin' Up! (whisper white, always artichoke, crumb cake). Using my image software, I flipped the camel horizontally so he was facing the other direction. I then printed the camel on white card stock and colored him using Copic markers (E51, E53, E55, E57). I then distressed the card stock using always artichoke ink and a finger sponge. The frame is a cut file from the Silhouette online store. This particular cut file came as a card with other objects. Because I wanted the camel to appear behind foliage, I cut away the other objects and flipped the cut file vertically using the designer silhouette software. I raised the frame using pop dots and adhered it to the white card stock. I brought the sentiment into the designer software and used the print and cut feature. This was also distressed with always artichoke ink. The frame for the sentiment is also a cut file from the online store. I adhered the sentiment to the frame and raised it using pop dots onto the white card stock. Everything was then mounted onto the crumb cake card base.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
