Forest Friends Thanks - Stampin' Up! Happier Than Happy

   I'm joining in the fun over at Freshly Made Sketches today with their fun layout using circles! I knew what I wanted to do with this sketch as soon as I saw it.  It took me longer to figure out what DSP to use in the background than anything!

  I kept the colors muted and neutral for the whole woodland theme. The card base is Pear Pizzazz, then a layer of Happy Forest Friends DSP, then the layer of Basic White with the holes die cut.

  I stamped the animals, die cut and trimmed the bear to fit then popped them up with dimensionals in the holes.  The sentiment is stamped on Mossy Meadow, embossed in white and then cut out with the sweet tag die in the Happy Forest dies. Some linen thread to finish off the tag as well as a few retired candy dots in Crumb Cake in the corners keeps the embellishments to minimum.  

  What a fun sketch!  Maybe if I have time I'll try it again with a totally different take.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
