Stanley's Ssspecial Wissshes

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 347 - More Burgundy Artichokes.
My layout is from Monday's MOJO MONDAYS' SKETCH CHALLENGE # 213.
I have sadly been neglecting my other stamps and am trying to show them some lovin. I buy these images because they appeal to me then don't use them. Hoping to change that habit of mine.
I stamped "Stanley the Snake" from High Hopes on vanilla twice using momento rich cocoa then colored him with copics, cut him out and popped him and the 2 flowers up on dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped in always artichoke then cut with Stampin Up's large oval punch and doddled around the edge with bravo burgundy marker.
I cut the artichoke circle then dry embossed with Vitorian embossing folder in my cuttlebug machine. My dp is from DCWV Safari Chic stack.
I LOVE how this turned out and hope you do too.

LOL! Your post title is just about as cute as your card, Neva. That snake is darling and I love the palm DP in the background.
