Spring Ferret Fever!

I fell in love with this cute little ferret from Meljen Designs and decided he would look great on a side step card. I love trying new card techniques, so when I saw this type of card I knew I would be making one soon! I cut my card stock 6" x 12" so my ferret had to fit on a 2" wide panel. There are other sizes you can choose, just do a search for "side step cards".
I am entering my card in the current Flutterby Wednesday Challenge #100 - congratulations Danni!
My card is also eligible for entry in several other challenges:
Here is an angled view:
I had so much fun creating this card! The image is adorable and the side step design was a challenge. I used Bo Bunny design paper and Canson card stock. I decided to create a little outdoorsy scene so my "grass" was made with a Cuttlebug folder and a Martha Stewart punch. The wavy cut was created with a Creative Memories paper cutter. I love using buttons and the five on the bottom are strung with jute. A few dew drops and the essential butterflies complete the "picture"!
Copics:
E00, E25, E33, E35, E50, BG01, Y17, Y23, R05, R11 and R20.
Thanks for visiting!
