Critter Challenge # 37

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I worked on swaps all day Saturday and participated in the mini-VSBN on SCS. The main VSBN will be Nov. 5th & 6th so try to join us! So, it's Monday and that means another fabulous challenge at the Critter Sketch Challenge blog. Continuing this month is another wonderful sketch to play with.

Our sponsor for October is Meljen's Designs and there are soooooo many adorable images it is sometimes hard to decide. You can find them all at Whimsy Stamps here.

I chose Meljen's digi stamp - Stuffed Elephant. There are a couple of new or expectant moms at my church so I made this card for one of them.

The cardstock is Cool Caribean and the dp is some I've had in my stash for a long time. It is a light green color but doesn't show up in the photo well. I colored the image with copics (B02, B95) and used the colorless blender to lighten up the cheek circles and toes. The inner tag is punched with the SU tag punch and I matted and free hand cut the outer tag mat. The word "baby" is from SU's All Year cheer II set. I colored a white brad with copic marker G14 and added stickles to it. I had some ABC blocks in my stash and put them on top of the buttons and then added the white ribbon and popped up the image and tag with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed my card for the Critter Sketch Challenge. Stop by and play with us for a chance to win a prize. Don't forget to visit the rest of the DT for some fabulous inspiration!
