Cute Critters.....{TKJ}

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone!!!
It is time for a new challenge over at
And this week we want to see your
Cute Critters 
And since I am such a fan of Bugaboo Stamps I used one of their cute critters for my card. Hope you like it!!!
For my card I started out with a Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock and added a layer of blue cardstock from the Persnickety paper pad from Lilybee Designs and then a layer of Vintage Dictionary Pages. How fun that the dictionary paper matched almost perfectly the cloud designer paper from my paper pack??? I added  some machine stitching to my mat and then die cut some clouds to use as a border from My Creative Time's~ Stitched Cartoon Cloud Dies. Then using some Natural Hemp Cord and a Custom Fastener I added  some faded jeans distress stickles and my birthday sentiment using the Teeny Tiny Greeting Stamps set with the matching die, again from My Creative Time.
For the cutie critter, I used the adorable Girl Bear from Bugaboo Stamps, traced her in my silhouette studio so I could perfectly die cut a frame around her. She was printed off on the Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock, the colored using my copic markers and paper pieced using matching papers from the designer paper pack. I wanted to bling her up a bit more so I added some red stickles to her headband and the heart on her dress and also added a SU gem to the bow. She was them popped up using foam dots to the card.

So there you have inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
As always I have linked all the supplies I used from The Kraft Outlet throughout my description.  If you have not checked out the store yet....make sure you do! There is so much available, the prices are so reasonable and shipping is super fast!!!
