Squirrel Miss You

I made this card for my BF - from the squirrels at the local park.  They miss him!  He used to walk there a a lot and would take peanuts to feed them.  This is something he really enjoyed.  Then he got busy with school and homework and life in general.  (As a side note, he went back to community college as an adult and got the highest average in his class!)  Well, school's out and he's working now, so I think it's time he started visiting the the squirrels at the park again - and so do they! 

For this card, I requested this cute little squirrel digi from Trimgym's Digistamps, Papers and Images for her monthly challenge, and I'm just getting my card entered under the wire - this is the final day!  I coloured the squirrel with pencils (Stampin' Up!) and then fussy-cut.  The "Miss You" sentiment is a freebie digi from Digital Doodling which I printed and then overstamped with a tag from Studio G.  Then I fussy-cut and doodled a stitched border around it.  The little acorn is part of a stamp from Michaels, coloured with pencils and fussy-cut.  The photo was taken at the local park which I found through a Google search.  Other supplies used were:  cardstock (Recollections and unknown brown from my stash), hemp twine (MultiCraft Imports), ink (Ranger Sea Shells - Sea Grass and Color Box - Mudslide), black marker (Staedtler).  I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
