Wild Thing

     I'm back with another challenge I decided to do. As a member of the Cricut Circle, we are giving the opportunity to enter into some weekly challenges. This weeks was to do something using animals. This put a fire under me since I have several baby cards to do to welcome 2 beautiful babies Cohen and Collin. No they are not twins but cousins born several weeks apart, lol.
     My niece has a wild animal thing going and she and her husband love raccoons. This was a no brainier to use for the challenge and get a card done! I really LOVE how this came out. The reason is I love this paper for the raccoon. Its from DCWV the Safari Chic stack. Sometimes the die cuts look too "cutesy". This paper actually looks like fur! I cut the image from Animal Kingdom @ 3" and the phrase "wild thing" is from Zooballo @ 3/4". The stamp is one I had but wanted to keep with the "woodsy" feel so I inked it with Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo and embossed with TH embossing powder. Just added a few white dots for the eyes and some imaginisce gold dots for a little bling!
I really am trying to use up my scraps so I just added some scrap strips to the inside. Oh I forgot to mention, the background paper was a sheet I had stashed away. It was perfect for this woodsy look. Don't forget to leave a comment and tell me what you think!
