Gettin Wild in the Woods

I love all of the adorable animal images that Marina Neira designs for The Greeting Farm- This card is for a challenge that they are holding for a Guest DT spot featuring her cute stamps. So let me introduce you to this furry little couple, with Mistletoe Kiss.

I stamped the birch tree background and colored with copics, highlighted with a white pen. For the sky background, I painted it with Twinkling h2o's. I cut a scalloped heart out with nestabilities, then cut a smaller heart from the off-cut and raised it with pop-dots. I used Core'dinations blue paper, run through the cuttlebug with the candy cane stripe folder to emboss it, then distressed the embossing the the stamped tree paper. I added yummy swarovski crystals around the border of the heart to set it off, added snow glitter for the forest floor, and a couple of mushrooms colored and covered in liquid glass. Finally, I had a background fitting for some Skunky Love (and no, I would not call this card Love Stinks - I personally think that love is grand!) I printed the image twice and colored the sweet little skunks with my Copic markers. Aren't they just so cute?!

With this forest backdrop, this is also my card for the challenge at
Spoon Full of Sugar
- Make a scene (I think I made a scene with my forest background, and it looks like the skunks are makin their own scene!)
It's also a sweet Christmas card, so I used it for my entry to Roses on Paper Challenge (to make a Christmas Card). And I have the snowy floor of the woods for the snow challenge at Cupcake Craft Challege.
