It has been a rainy Tuesday so what better way to brighten it up than with a card!!!
I had fun coloring some Lawn Fawn squirrels this weekend from the Let's Go Nuts stamp set and then cut them out with the matching dies. They sat in a pile on my desk until I saw a couple of challenges to inspire my card.
I used the Library Challenge #69 book cover and the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #86 as inspiration to create my card. The tree and squirrel in the book cover inspired mine and the colorful leaves from the photo badge I duplicated on my card.
Instead of making my squirrel red or brown like a lot of the cards I have seen using the Let's Go Nuts stamp set, I chose to color my little critter in gray like the squirrels in my area. They have been quite a nuisance this fall, running in front of my car but so far I have not harmed any.
The tree is from the Lawn Fawn Lift the Flap Tree Backdrop die. This die was a bit pricey but I LOVE that I can cut it out of the backdrop and use it on its own!! I colored the trunk in by blending Walnut Stain and Ground Espresso Distress Ink with a touch of spritzed water and layered this over a My Favorite Things Wonky Circle die cut.
