Get Well Squirrel

I needed a masculine get-well card and here's what I came up with.

I stamped the acorn in black on three circle-punched scraps of patterned paper and affixed to a kraft card.  I stamped the sentiment and the squirrel in black and affixed a heart gem.  Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Squirrel, acorn (Recollections), sentiment (Anita's)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Cardstock:  Stampin' Up!
  • Patterned paper:  K & Company
  • Punch:  Marvy Uchida
  • Heart gem:  Dollar store
