Hand Stamped Sentiments #277

I love LOVE this sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments.  
I busted out my paper snips for this sketch challenge to do a bunch of fussy cutting.  I don't mind detail cutting with scissors, but what's a huge bummer is I have reached the point in life where it's not going to happen without a pair of magnifying glasses.
After I cut a bunch of trees and critters from the Pick a Pattern DSP I arranged them as a "wild" pack of animals sitting out in nature.  I grabbed some retired Emerald Envy ribbon to fit the challenge and then stamped my sentiment from the Pieces of Patterns set in Basic Black.
 I stamped the greeting with Basic Black Archival Ink and let it fully dry before I watercolored it.  I used Flirty Flamingo and Crushed Curry Inks to add some color to the "wild."  I tiny hit of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter is one of those details I just can't help myself from adding.  It's subtle but so SO me.
This group of wild life to me looks like they are waiting for something special.  Cute aren't they?
