The Heart Desires Challenge #16

Hello Blogging Friends!

Today I am sharing this card that I made for the Heart Desires Challenge #16.

Here is the inspiration photo for this challenge:

Here is my card for the Heart Desires Challenge #16:


Memory Box Oak Flourish die
Die-Versions Sweet Petite Squirrel die
Embossing folders
Assorted paper from my stash
Brown card stock
Brown ink
Orange ink
Copic markers

For this 5 inch by 7 inch card I started with brown card stock for the base of the card.  I took the plaid paper, inked the edges with brown ink and added that to the card.  I cut out three ovals with orange paper and then ran them through my Big Shot with 3 different embossing folders, inked the edges with brown ink and rubbed some orange and brown ink lightly over the embossing and then added them to the card overlapping the ovals.  I cut out the Memory Box Oak Flourish die with yellow,  green, tan and brown paper and pieced the flourish together and added that to the card.  I cut out some white paper with the Die-Versions Sweet Petite Squirrel die, colored it in with Copic markers and added it to the card.

Please stop by the Heart Desires Challenge #16 to see all the cards made for this challenge.

I hope I have inspired you to make something fun today.
