Hello / Hi (Newton's Nook Designs stamp)

Hi, everybody!  Happy World Card Making Day to you!  I'm back again with another card! This one features one of my favourite Newton's Nook Designs kitty stamps, and it's from the Newton's Daydream set.

I coloured Newton with my Prismacolor pencils, fussy-cut, and adhered him to a punched tag (Marvy Uchida).  I doodled some faux stitching around the tag and added a twine bow.

I used a Darice Leaves embossing folder and some scraps of patterned paper (MME and Creative Memories).  The heart die is Spellbinders Classic Hearts, and the sentiments are made from tiny alphabet labels. 

I would like to support the following challenges:
A Creative Need Orange and Yellow 1/3
A Gem of a Challenge Clean and Simple UE
Brown Sugar Autumn/Fall 1/2
Cards in Envy Twine 3/3
CRAFT Technique Challenge - Embossing 1/5
