This week's The Cat's Pajamas Rubberstamps challenge is hosted by Carole, who challenged us to use this sketch to make a card.
Last week, I used Alma's newest stamp sets to make my card, and I wanted to use the "Happy Camper" set again, but this time I wanted to use the adorable squirrel (my favorite stamp in the set) and use a woodsy theme. Then the card took on a life of its own. I am sure that Alma would never have thought to combine her stamp sets this way!
The squirrel, trees, and some of the grass are from the "Happy Camper" set. The mushrooms and another grass are from the "Spring Fling" set. The "Bang" text is from "It's a Western Thing" set.
I strayed from the sketch a bit, since I made my card a "standard" A2 sized card, instead of making it square.
No squirrels were harmed in making this card. Traumatized, maybe, but not harmed.
