Squirrel card

Hi again!
Today I'm sharing a card with you that I made to enter into three different challenges:

Friday Sketchers - Use this sketch (parts of it or all of it)

Here's the card I've made:

I used a stamp set from Panduro to stamp the squirrel, which I colored in with Promarkers. I then added some squiggely lines to make it look like the squirrel is standing on the ground, with a fine lined black marker. I colored in the ground with Promarkers as well. I used some soft pool HeroArts shadow ink, a template of a sky, and a sponge to create the sky-background on the image. I used some different papers from a block of designer papers from Panduro to create the blue scalloped circle layer, and the brown layer on the cardbase. The cardbase is white bazzill cardstock. I paper pierced holes along the edge of the brown layer, using the mat pack from Stampin' Up!, and added lines in between to create faux stiching. I added a strip of orange ribbon, which I faded down the color of using white pigment ink. The flowers were made with patterned paper, a small flowerpunch, a couple of small circle-punches, and the Flower Creations Shapeabilities die by Spellbinders. I added the image-piece and the flowers to the card using foam adhesive.

Thanks for stopping by today!
