Happy Birthday Squirrel

Hi, everyone!  I'm back again today - I guess I do have my mojo back!  I have another card to share for the Freshly Made Sketches 200th sketch celebration! Check out their sketch below. This card is for a masculine birthday so I added no embellishments.

The cute squirrel is a cling-mount rubber stamp from Magenta called Party Squirrel and I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut. I love creating little scenes so I used Lawn Fawn Grass Border with patterned papers from Simple Stores, Colorbok, and Doodlebug. I created the sky by sponging Tumbled Glass Distress Ink using a cloud template from Netty's Cards (thank you, Annette!).  The sentiment stamp is from Avery Elle Cake and Candles clear stamps.

Here's the 200th sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  Head over and join the celebration!

I was also inspired by these fun challenges:

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!

What an adorable scene you created. Love how you did those clouds/sky especially. And, of course, your squirrel is so very darling. P.S. took a peek at your earlier card with the cat and bird, and love that one too! So very cute.

Such a beautiful background, Kitty! Your sponging is very impressive!! And love so much the grass diecut in three different patterned papers!! This is a so creative use of leftover stripes! The fun squirrel with the balloon is just a cutie and the sentiment seems have a 3D look so flying in the air! Great mojo, my friend, you rock!!! :D
