{Paper Smooches} SquirrelFest: Part 3 with Challenge, Giveaway + Video! (Birthday Winner Announced)


After sharing my husband's card and my son's painting, I was inspired to create my own hilarious squirrel scene in the form of an accordion tri-fold card.


I used Enjoy the Show (Circus Icons) and Fanciful Fall (Fanciful Fall Icons) sets to create my scene and sponged the sky and grass with distress inks.




If this scene were to play out in slow motion, you would see the squirrel jumping up to replace all of the acorns with balls. I'm sure you have other interpretations of what's happening between the clown and the squirrel. I'd love to hear them! ;)


I hope you'll play along for extra chances to win two fabulous Paper Smooches stamp sets!
