Patterned Paper Woodland ~ The Card Concept 40 & FMS205

Happy Wednesday fellow stampers! I designed this card with The Card Concept #40 and Freshly Made Sketches #205 in mind.  

I suppose my card falls into the clean and layered category over at the Card Concept and I was totally inspired by the cute little woodland animals.  In fact I love these little critters so that  if I get time I'm going to try to play along again!

It kinda took a direction entirely different than I had originally planned.  The paper pieced trees and hedgehog were in my original design in my head, and then I saw a scrap of polka dotted blue laying on my desk and thought it might look good as the sky.  From there on it was patterned paper-palooza!  The interpretation of the sketch is a little loose, but I like it that way!  

I think this little mushroom is probably my favorite thing on this's so cute!  I colored in the white dots with my white gel pen.  

Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Life in The Forest, Sprinkles of Life
Ink: Black, Crumb Cake
Paper: Various retired DSP's, Crumb Cake, White
Accessories: Hearth and Home Framelits, Bird Builder punch, circle punch, Linen thread
