This is for this week's Featured Stamper Laurie (virgo5). She has a really fun gallery with lots of critters. I find them challenging, but knew I wanted to use this set for my nephew's birthday. This is the card I found in her gallery to get me started: Happy Day Pup! by virgo5 at Splitcoaststampers
I thought I had some of that exact paper left, but alas, I had used it all before. The paper that I ended up using is some of my very favorite paper.
Her layout was very similar to the Sugar Pea Designs Mix It Up Challenge, so that worked great.
So, I used her layout (mostly) and used a critter. My card is for his birthday. I tried using fun colors like hers (and still cool for a teen - I hope).
