This must be a pink & green kind of couple of weeks! I just love it! I came up with this card for the Peachy Keen Challenge and used their Critter Faces for my ducky's cute little eyes! I also used the Just Because Cards for her plaid body with pink wings, beak & feet! ...Get it? A one-of-a-kind duck? LOL! :~)
I used the Just Because Cards cartridge for the background shapes also and I took a 5"x1.5" strip of green card stock, stuck one end through my Decorative Label punch by Stampin' Up (leaving the other end hanging out of the way of the cutting edge) and then reversed it and cut the other end out (otherwise the punch cuts a 1.5" square shape which was too short for my green card stock).

You need to cut the strip narrow enough so that you can tuck one end under the blade and leave the other end out of the way of the cutting edge.|
|To attach the bow, I used my rectangular hole punch and punched 2 holes into the paper and threaded the ribbon through the back and tied it in front.|
|I stamped this with a stamp from Michael's and then edged it in pink chalk, sprayed it with Golden Terracotta Glimmer Mist and then topped it with Glossy Accents (I squeezed a long strip over it and then spread it out with my finger!)|
|I pop-dotted this little ducky and highlighted her with my white gel pen.|
