Opossum Pals

MMSC37 sketch: (Jan 26) 
Basic Grey Week 12~~~ animals (Feb 5)
Quixotic #10~~~ Ink up an old stamp (Jan 27) The inside sentiment Friendship Adds to Happiness is an old stamp that I rummaged from my Mom :) Thanks Mom
Stamp Something~~  Funny somethings (Jan 29)
Susie's Sassy Designs~~  Card for boy/option an animal (Jan 27)

I decided to make an easel card featuring the new Opossum Pals stamp by Tina Wenke~~they are so darn cute!!  Colored image with copics and lightly daubered the sky with SU Bordering Blue ink.  Cut out with Spellbinders Label 2 nesties. Papers used are SU cardstock and Cottage Wall DP along with One small piece of BG Porcelain DP (found on top front of card).  Sentiment created with SU lots of tags sizzlet, SU Teeny Tiny Wishes (friend to friend), daubered with SU bravo burgundy ink and detailed lines with SU marker.  Embellished with Flower Soft gold border on top of card and on sentiment, ribbons and Heidi Grace Icons

  Close up of Opossums image and sentiment~~both given dimension with foam tape.  I did use the distress CB folder on the tree trunk but doesn't show very well :0
Close up of inside/bottom of easel card.  Used Spellbinders octagon nesties~used CB Swirls folder on large Octagon~added Flower Soft gold border again along with HG Icons as stoppers :)  Inside sentiment is Hero Arts stamp and McGill punch made the heart which I then coated with stickles.
