Happy Birthday Carol

Today I want to wish a very Happy Birthday to my dear Inkspirational team-mate Carol.  I really hope this card has beaten the Christmas post and made it across the Atlantic on time.

At this time of year I like to make birthday cards that could not be mistaken for Christmas cards! I used a squirrel stamp (new!!) from Clearly Besotted and a CB sentiment from another set. I used scraps of Cosmo Cricket paper and used just a tiny bit for some paper-piecing on the tail.

Have a great day Carol!

I'd like to enter:
Penny Black at Allsorts  anything goes with a stamp
SSS Monday just a pinch (of paper-piecing)
Creatalicious something old (paper) , something new (squirrel stamp)
Mod Squad  anything but a Christmas card

Oh, your team-mate will love this card. So cute with the little squirrel running across the page. And I love the polka dots and scallops too. Great take on the challenge, thank you so much for participating this week at the Mod Squad Challenge

What a charming birthday card and you're right-- it was nice to see something totally distinctive and separate from a Christmas card. I love how you made the cute little squirrel be center-stage and I love, love, LOVE the way you incorporated patterned paper into his tail. And then you used the same pattern on the scallop base, which was such a nice touch. This card made me smile and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
