Hang In There

I am playing along with two challenges today...the first is a just for fun sketch challenge by 
Lesley Croghan of Always Playing with Paper.  It's a cute sketch and we can make anything we want, any stamps or dies we want as long as we base our card on the sketch.  I combined the sketch with some Paper Smooches stamps I just received and made an Anything Goes card for the 

Here's Lesley's sketch:
Since I wanted to use my new stamps from Paper Smooches (Hang-Ups), I was determined to come up with some way to use those stamps with this sketch.  Here is what I came up with:
The three branches represent the three stripes in the sketch and I added the cute squirrel hanging from the middle branch.  It's not obvious in the picture, but his eyes have glossy accents on them and are very dimensional.  I punched a few flags using a new Stampin Up punch, layered the whole thing on some Lil Inker Stitched Mat rectangles, added some copic coloring and that was it.  If you would like to play along with Lesley's challenge...here's the link.  There is still a few days left for you to play along.
