Home is Where Your Story Begins...

Here is a fun little card.  I do not use a lot of digital stamps but just can’t resist the adorable ones at Bugaboo Stamps.  This little guy is from their Oz collection.  I colored him with Tombow markers and cut him out with a Spellbinder circle.  I layered this on a yellow scalloped circle and sponged brown ink on the edges of both.  This is layered with foam tape onto a jungle looking background.

I started with a tan card base and added a layer of dark brown.  On the top section of the card I used some green decorative cardstock.  On the bottom I used a yellow layer and then added two rectangular sections of tan cardstock that was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and sponged with brown ink.

For final touches I added a simple sentiment and three die cut fern leaves.
