Squirrel tag...

Hey,

I skipped a post yesterday..not like me..but I had to work on Sunday and it kind of confused me!

No matter, here I am with a little challenge entry ;)

It's the second time I am joining up with Tag You're It! The inspiration piece is gorgeous -


The main card today is my second attempt at it! I managed to salvage the DCWV Squirrel - its from a Woodland box of chipboard with Bears, Beavers, Owls, trees, frames and other goodies - I love them all and use them sparingly - I got the box on sale :)

The tag, background paper and Leopard print tab are all from the same paper pack by Recollections. I really love the backing paper, I like the way it has a distressed feel to the edges. I die cut the tag using a Sizzix Tim Holtz die.

I smudged some white ink onto the backing paper, so my sentiment would pop out better and I am pleased with the result. The sentiment stamp is by Technique Tuesday. I added a brown pearl, because I love even lo-key bling!

In the end the whole card came together really quickly, which is often the way with a second attempt!

  3. Love the greeting and papers - the little clip is great as well, good use of that tricksy thing - but you know that is a beaver, right?
