I spent part of this weekend at a friend's house crafting with some pals. We always have such a great time, and get a lot of cards made. Over the next few days I'll be sharing some of my creations.

but I ended up moving the critter over to the left so his tail hung over the sentiment(s), and then I needed to balance that with a tiny flag at the top. But my card is still in the spirit of the sketch.
I made two of that version of the card and two more with another image:
One critter shifted left and one shifted right. I just couldn't bring myself to center the little guys.
And yes, that's a (gah) pink layer. We voted, and pink really was the best color for me to use here. Naturally I needed to borrow* a piece of (gah) pink card stock, since you know I didn't bring any with me.

Stuff I used: piece of mystery pink 12x12 card stock, and the following:
