For Emma

This card was made for my dd. She had made some bad choices in the last couple of years and gotten involved with some bad people. We took her to a charter school about 3 1/2 hours from where we live on Sunday. So, I made this to include in her first care package that I will be sending.
After the long car trip, I have been absolutely exhuasted this week. I almost stayed home today, but I really have a hard time justifying staying home when I'm able to come to work. Anyway, when I'm this tired, my hands shake, so the dots aren't the best.
I used the colors from the CC181 at SCS. The base is creamy caramel (I had no kraft, but I think this color went nicely with the squirel anyway), black and rose red. The back ground was stamped with leaves and acorns on white and colored with copics. I sponged it with bashful blue. the squirel and branch were also colored with copics. I stamped the sentiment, punched it with the small oval, inked it with rose red and framed it with the larger oval, punched from black. I added the primas and a dew drop to finish it off.
