Critter Friends


Today I have a card for this weeks Etsy Inspired challenge...
I had a lot of stuff going on - DT assignments piling up, school piling up, volleyball piling up, so I kinda shoved this card out the door. I wasn't going to spend time fretting over the perfect touch, so here it is, without many wasted minutes trying to figure out what is missing (if, by the way, you notice what is missing, please don't hesitate to tell me! ;))

The shop is Lindsay Art and there were so many amazing photos to choose from. Finally, I decided, and was inspired by THIS photo.

Deer, colors, friendship - really, do I need to say anything else about where I drew my inspiration from? ;)

The prize for participating in this oh-so-lovely challenge?
A "Key To My Heart" stamp set from Practicing Creativity! Want want!
Now view the rest of the DT's examples!

Deets on the card:
I cut and distressed the papers, and then rubbed on the Prima images to the white paper. Added all the papers together (with some added dimension), and then attached that to the base. After adding some foam squares to the letters, I adhered those to the base as well, then tied the twine. Finished off with a half pearl and button.

I'm not used to adding buttons on my bows/ribbon, but the bottom of the card was so heavy, I had to balance it out. ;)

Oh, and one last thing; you still have a week to enter my giveaway!

Thanks for popping in! ;)
