So Busy

I've been super busy lately with work and getting our house ready to put on the market that I haven't had a lot of time to craft.  I've had a card idea stuck in my head for 4-5 days and I finally had a little time to make it.  I used Paper Smooches Lots of Love stamps to create the background by stamping the large X & O in Distress Ink Spun Sugar.  Next I cut out all of the critters from Paper Smooches Zoo Crew using the coordinating dies and then stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored each of the zoo crew animals with Copic markers.  I cut out the background with Mama Elephants scalloped border creative cuts and then I cut out an oval in the center using Lil Inker Designs Stitched Mats Ovals.  I arranged each of the critters in the window created by the oval.  I cut out a banner using Paper Smooches Banner Die and then stamped its coordinating stamp with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The sentiment was created with the heart from Paper Smooches Zoo Crew and the letters are from Paper Smooches Mini Monograms, also white heat embossed.  To finish the card off I mounted everything on gray paper and added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins.  I hope you enjoy it!

I am entering this card into the Paper Smooches Anything Goes Challenge.
