Here's the challenge sketch.
The woodgrain paper is from My Mind's Eye, a 6x6 paper pad called On The Bright Side. A label on the back says 2012. Seriously trying to use some of my paper stash. I love the rusty color and the faux texture look it gives to the overall look of the card. I used a dark chocolate card base and a mat of Very Vanilla.
After stamping the wreath I colored it with Copics. I rounded the bottom right corners just like the sketch.
I colored the cute squirrel and cut it out to add to the side.
I added a pretty ribbon behind the wreath circle before adhering it to the card base. I love how a card comes together even better than the idea in your mind.
My father, who is almost 90 and walks 3 miles a day, loves squirrels. There is a squirrel joke he tells to EVERYONE he meets. So dad, this squirrel card is going to remind you that I am nutty for you!
