Happy October1st!! It's time for a new challenge on the Critter Crazy Challenge blog! As always, it is a month long challenge: Anything Goes as long as you feature a creature. Here is my card for your inspiration:
I pulled out this cute little llama a week or so ago for another card, and just felt the need to use him again for this card. He's just so cute! I used a couple scraps that were already cut to width, I just had to trim them to the correct length. I wanted a fun background, so I pulled out an embossing folder that I had won a few years ago and had yet to use. It has a bunch of ornaments and I decided to stamp the sentiment inside one of the embossed ornaments. I stamped the sentiment and then lined it up within the ornament in question and was so excited about how well it lined up, that I didn't realize the embossing folder was upside down and I ended up DEbossing the image instead. Oh, well, it still gives a fun background. You can see the texture better in the photo below:
