Busy Squirrels
by Donna

Good morning everyone!

Today I have a whimsical fall birthday card for you, because it's fun to think of crisp fall days during these hot, hazy days of summer.  These busy squirrels give me hope for cooler days!

To create this card die cut all the elements from watercolor paper.  All of the die cuts were sponged with distress ink.  The Graceful Branch Oval was inked with Vintage Photo Ink, the squirrels with Hickory Smoke and the oval background with Ripe Persimmon, Carved Pumpkin, Candied Apple, Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint.  Mist each die cut lightly with water to blend the ink.

Adhere the Graceful Branch Oval to the inked die cut oval.  Stamp the sentiment along the top edge.  The sentiment came from a clear Poppystamp set called Into the Words.  Because the sentiment is a clear stamp, you're able to curve it on the block to fit along the edge of the oval.

The squirrels are glued on to the branches with foam adhesive.  Adhere this assembled piece to a white cardstock layer and that to a kraft cardstock layer, and then to a white card base.  

I hope you enjoyed today's card!
