An Otterly Birthday Card

Today I'm working on a few fun projects involving some cute new stamps I got over the weekend!  New goodies are always fun, aren't they? :)  I love it when something sparks my creativity!  Today I'm sharing a card inspired by the current Lawnscaping Challenge:

One of my favorite things about Lawn Fawn is all the cute critter stamps!  I can't get enough of them!  I am so happy I had time to play along with the challenge.  Here is what I made:

I have loved otters since living in Monterey, California.  Have you ever been there?  I would spot otters swimming around in the bay on my walks home from work- they are sooo cute!  One of many things I miss about living in Monterey :)

I colored this guy from the Year Five Stamp Set with Stampin' Up! Blendabilities and cut him out.  I made cut some Lawn Fawn patterned papers into waves and then cut them into an oval shape.  I added the bits and pieces to the oval base with foam adhesive to add some dimension.

I wanted a carefree fun feeling to this card so I splattered my white card base and added some random waves stamped behind where the oval would go.  I added a wad of thread and then placed my focal point over it.  I sprinkled some sequins over the card and glued them down where they landed. :)

This little cutie sure makes me smile!  Hope you're having a great day and thanks for stopping by!
