I Love Roo!

Hello! I really wanted to pull out my Paper Smooches stamps today and play along with this weeks Paper Smooches Picture Perfect Challenge! Here is what I came up with:
And here is the photo inspiration:

I immediately noticed the chevron curtain in the background, and remembered some new washi tape that I was dying to use! So...I started there! Then I paper pieced the cute little kangaroo using some Cosmo Cricket pattern paper I had in my stash.
Next, I added a bit of washi tape under the kangaroo to pull out the middle pillow color, then used a My Creative Time Die to cut the frame, and heat embossed in white the sentiment. I wasn't going to, but it seemed like it needed the black matte to ground it a little, so I went with it.
Added some more washi tape under the sentiment as banners, and then finished off with a bit of black bling I had in my stash.
I hope you're having a great day! I will be back tomorrow sharing a card I created for Unity Friends with Flair, and on Monday I'm SOOO excited to start sharing some of the sneak peeks for the December Peachy Keen release! It is AMAZING!!! Can't wait to share! So...unless I pop in today with something else (always a possibility!) - I will see you tomorrow!
