BBTB2 - Nuts About You

Happy Monday!!!

Bitten by the Bug 2

Welcome to another challenge over at BBTB2!!!

This week our challenge is themed
"Nuts About You"

So create a card using squirrels and nuts
and all those punny sentiments you have
lying around!!!

I created this card using scraps I found in my stash,
I wanted to see what I could come up with mixing and matching
papers from various paper packs.
So I had fun creating this sketch!

My image is from Stretch Your Imagination
and I cut the silhouette feature, the blackout feature,
and the shadow feature all at 3 1/2".

The acorns come from Art Philosophy
and I cut them at 1", 3/4", and 1/2".

I love this brown ric-rac ribbon from American Crafts
and must find more of it!

My sentiment comes from Craftin' Desert Divas
Punny Stamp Set.
The flat back pearls are from Recollections.

I did do some inking with Color Box Chalk Ink and
Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.
The squirrel is popped up on some foam tape too.

I hope that you will join us over at BBTB2 for
our "Nutty" challenge and can't wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
