Squirrel with Sunflower Card

There are many people who feel squirrels are pests but I absolutely adore them! They are charismatic and thoroughly entertaining. It may not surprise you that I feed them in my backyard so they will come visit. The squirrels here in Eastern Oklahoma are brownish red in color and are classified as a Fox Squirrel. They are super cute!

This Squirrel with Sunflower Card was created in anticipation of fall arriving. I know it's still a month away but I can't wait. I used the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches for the card design. The Sunny Squirrel digital image is by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and I colored it with Copic markers. Keeping with the fall theme, I selected patterned papers from Bo Bunny (yellow polka dot) and Stampin' Up! (retired Color Me Autumn dsp). I added some candy dots for detail but decided not to use a sentiment to keep the occasion options open. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

My Squirrel with Sunflower Card is entered into the following challenges:
