Better together...


I'm back to end the month of May with another card using stamps from Hello Bluebird's recent release. These cute critters are part of the Forest Friends set and I just love how animated and full of personality they all are. The Better Together sentiment inspired the idea to first show each animal on their own individual panel then bring them all together on a larger panel to represent the importance of good friendships. The Gallery Frame #1 was the perfect die to make this idea happen so I used it to cut the Copic X-Press It card stock for my coloring as well as this cool embossed wood grain card stock for the outer frame. The little touches of grass and rocks on the bottom panel are actually from the large Pathway Background stamp, I simply did some very selective inking to get just the background bits that I needed.  

Have a great day my friends!
