A Skunk with a Black Stripe !?!

     Let me be the first to tell you that there is no arguing with a 9-year-old who already knows all the answers!  lol  Did you know that skunks have white tails with a black stripe?  Neither did I, but I have it on good authority that's how they look so this darling skunk from Sparkle n Sprinkle by artist Beccy's Place is colored that way.  Only fair, I suppose, since this particular 9-year-old is giving this card to her friend for the friend's birthday.

The sketch is from Seems a Little Sketchy
and the colors came from Outlawz Color challenge (+ a tree or leaf.)


     The image is colored with ProMarkers and Copics, and die cut.  I matted it with red and yellow mats and corner punched each of the mats.  The doily die is from Cheery Lynn Designs as are the butterfly and the leaves.  The leaves are actually from a border die but they were perfect for this card.  I added Goldenrod and Copper Penny glitters (also from Sparkle n Sprinkle) to the leaves and the butterfly body for a bit of sparkle and bling.  It's hard to see in the photo but I also added Copper Penny glitter to the flower centers.

     Can you believe no patterned dp?  Someone else must have sneaked this card in while I was gone.  :-D

A skunk with a white tail and black stripe works for me too. Who's to argue with a 9 year old anyway!!! So cute and love your card. Like the way you used the border die for the leaves! Very nice.
