C4C400 Cheerful Squirrel Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our August 2017 Hostess is Raquel Mason and Fran Sabad is our Guest Designer. You can find Fran's Blog HERE.  If you noticed this is the 400th challenge for the blog!!

Here is Raquel's challenge this week: Back to School – All the summer fun has come to an end for teachers and students. Let’s make a card to help cheer someone up, any cheerful theme or image will do.

I have a bright and cheery Pop-Up card to share today, using a bunch of dies by Karen Burniston. I had a leftover piece of this polka dot patterned paper that I did not want to find a spot for. It was with some pieces of green and turquoise card stock that had been used for a different card, so I combined them and added the cute squirrel from the Woodland Animals.

Inside I used the Katherine Label Pop-Up, which is quickly becoming a favourite of not just me but several of Karen Burniston's Design Team!

I was able to use up everything but about a 1" square of the patterned paper so that made me happy.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C400.
