DTC #45 - it's all about the animals

Happy Tuesday everyone! We have a new challenge over at the Digital Tuesday Blog. I am the hostess this week and the challenge I chose is "All about the animals." I hope you'll join us!!

Here is my card for that challenge. I used the cute Susie Squirrel in the rain image from Digital Stamp Oasis. After coloring it with copic markers I cut it out because Susie wasn't in the mood for rain today. LOL.



Card stock is from Stampin Up, designer papers from Basic Grey and Stampin Up. I distressed all edges for a vintage feel. I embellished with brads, ribbon, lace, paper flowers and buttons, a heart charm and some flourishes which were done with a sizzix die that I got from Michaels art store.
I had a few challenges in mind when I made this card, so here they are:

1, Basic Grey - sketch
2. All sorts - Get distressed with buttons and a bow
3. Dare you to digistamp - hearts and/or valentines
4. Cute Card Thursday - Dots and spots
5. stamp with fun - hearts

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I hope you'll have time to play along for a chance to win some digis from the Digital Stamp Oasis. Have a GREAT day.

Ellie, this card is GORGEOUS!!! I see flourishes like these all the time, are they from a nestie die? I can't see anything that is mediocre about it!
