Oscar the Grouch's Summer House

On a Stampin' Up! Demonstrators list ESAD that I belong to there was a challenge this week to make a 3D item and matching card using this truck template . Well after a few days of thinking and bouncing ideas off my long suffering DH - I decided upon making a wheelie bin from the 3D item, but then couldn't think of a matching card to make - until my son was watching Elmo on a DVD. Well it's not quite Oscar's normal trash can, but maybe I can get away with it as his summer house as we just don't have trash cans like his in Australia for our rubbish collection.

The result was simple, but cute (in my opinion of course!!) Not a stamp in sight and CASEing the sesame street character design from SCS which I would love to know who first came up with it, but a big thank you to the talented individual that did!

Paper: Handsome Hunter, Basic black, Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White
