Laura's Sketch #29 & Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #11





Happy Friday! I stayed up way too late last night, fiddling around with this card when I should have been packing for vacation, yikes!


I had to squeeze in a card for Laura's Sketch #29, you know how I love the gang over at 2S4Y! Since time was of the essence, I multi-tasked and used Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #11 too! I love Dawn's color challenges, they really push me outside my "normal comfort zone" and make me try new combos, so thank you, Dawn!


I started playing with some Crate Paper die cuts that were in one of my Jenni Bowlin kits, and I loved the little squirrel, but he was the wrong color. So I adhered some Razzleberry Lemonade paper to some plain chipboard for sturdiness, then traced the squirrel and cut him out. Voila! It was too late to think of something clever for the sentiment, so I had to fall back with the generic "hi." I've said it before, but I could tell a LOT of people "hi" with my cards! lol!


Okay, gotta dash! Have a super Friday! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!


Recipe
Cardstock: Going Gray, Basic Black, Razzleberry Lemonade dsp.
Accessories: Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon, Black Hemp, Thickers, Crate Paper Glitter Die Cuts, Foof-a-La button, Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Dimensionals.

Cute card! Love the squirrel too! A sentiment you could use for the squirrel in the future is "Nuts About You!" I'm sure you have already thought of that! :) Have a great vacation!
