Nuts For You!

I just got in a few new Some Odd Girl sets that I purchased, so I HAD to use one of the new sets for their latest color challenge.  Their inspiration picture is this adorable nerdy bear note card from MyZoetrope's Etsy shop:

One of the new sets I got was Nutsy Kaylee.  I love the little squirrel in the set so had to use him :)

I colored him using my Prismacolor pencils (trying to get more practice with them!).  The sentiment is stamped in a teal/aqua ink.  To add the pink, I had a couple of different ideas, but wanted to keep the card pretty simple so opted for some stitching below the sentiment.  Then I used my scoring board to score two lines across the bottom and up to his tail on the left side.  To finishi it off, and balance the score lines a little, I rounded the top right corner.

I'm also playing along with the following challanges:



PAPER: Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake
INK: Stampin' Up! Indigo Island, Memento Tuxedo Black
STAMPS: Nutsy Kaylee by Some Odd Girl
OTHER: 1/2" Corner Chomper, Stampin' Up! Scoring Board; We R Memory Keepers Floss; Embroidery Needle; Paper Piercer; Stampin' Up! Mat Pack; Prismacolor Pencils
