Creative Card: "Specially for You"

It's that time of the week again...another Throwback Thursday Challenge from Emma at My Creative Time!  Her challenges are always fun and it's fun to blog-hop every week.  This week's challenge is to use an animal - preferably from Zooballoo.  I don't have Zooballoo, but I found this cute little squirrel from Disney's Happily Ever After cartridge.  Heads up to anyone out there that has this cartridge - there's also a cute little owl and a bird.  I don't know about you, but I think they all look surprisingly similar to the animals found on the brand new Cindy Loo cartridge.  How cute are those eyelashes???

Materials Used:
  • Card Base - I welded the squirrel's shadow and an acorn using the Gypsy (see the picture below)
  • Squirrel is cut at 4.29" from Disney's Happily Ever After
  • Acorn is from Create a Critter
  • "Specially for You" from Scrappy Mom's Sweet Somethings set
  • Swiss Dots A2 Embossing Folder - acorn's top
  • Color Box Liquid Chalk - Rose Coral, Rouge and Warm Red
  • Sakura Gelly Roll Pen - White
Hope that helps a bit...

Hope you have a wonderful day!!!
