create a critter card

i saw on my pink stamper that the theme was 'critters' or animals. of course i LOVE my create a critter cartridge, so i had to make a card to play along! i love all the animals on that cartridge, so it was tough to choose just one...but i chose the squirrel, in honor of my friends danielle (at girlracer scrap) and judy! :)

there is a lot of dimension and texture going on here. i cut up tiny pieces of embroidery thread (or friendship bracelet thread!), and glued it down as grass. i also used a border punch to make the 'stars' at the top of the card. and the moon was made with a circle punch: i cut a circle out, and the used the same circle punch to make the circle into a crescent, and vwa-la, a moon!

i also flocked the squirrels tail. he he! and of course the moon and the heart is popped up with foam squares.
