Newton's Nook Designs August Release- Hanging Around

It's release week for Newton's Nook Designs!  Today we are featuring an adorable set called Hanging Around- it includes many cute animals just hanging around! :)  Here is what I made:

I love the little opossum in this set!  We used to have a opossum that would look in the window of our city apartment, sitting on a fence nearby.  He seemed so out of place!  He definitely wasn't as cute as this guy but made me smile just the same!

I paper pieced my images and fussy cut around them, leaving a bit of space around the line.  I stamped some clouds in the background and then added my cuttings over the top, stamping my sentiment just to the right.

I kept my design simple, using a little Stampin' Up! patterned paper and a chalkboard patterned scallop diecut.  I embellished with a bit of hemp twine to finish off the look.
