Paper Smooches Freebie Squirrel

Paper Smooches stamps are so adorable and versatile, and they offer some really cute freebie stamps. I decided to try one out today. This little squirrel is just hanging out saying "hi". I love him. I printed him out on some white cardstock. I colored him using Copic Markers - C2, C4, and C7. I also used B000 on his eyes to give them a little dimension. I added Crystal Stickles to the dot of the "i" in "hi".  I gave his nose a little shine with Judikins Diamond Glaze.

For the layout of the card, I searched some sketches I had saved. I decided on My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge - Sketch 239.

Here is the sketch

Here is my interpretation. I used Bazzill Peppermint paper for the card base and the dotted circle. I cut the dotted circle out using my Silhouette Cameo. The patterned paper I used was from My Mind's Eye - Blush 6x6 paper pack. I also used the stitched frame die and stitched circle die from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes.

I popped up the squirrel using dimensionals. I added some red sequins for a little interest.

 That's my card! Let me know what you think! Thanks for looking!!! :)
