Happy Fall and 3-D felt

This week for the Unscripted Sketch card I choose to use the felt squirrel from the CTMH Wonder felt line. Be sure to check out all the entries and the design teams work for this sketch.
supplies from CTMH-Twitterpatted paper pack, Wonder felt, chocolate ink, Many thanks stamp set, sweetleaf ink
Other-scallop punch




My blog friend Kathi termed the phrase "card surgery", well for this card I preformed squirrel "amputation and reconstruction surgery"
The squirrel wasn't quite fitting on the card, so I squished him a bit, after looking at him for a few seconds I decided to remove his tail----
I then re attached it to the back of the squirrel
Tip-I used some "negative" part of the felt sheet to build up the front part of the squirrel so he would lay flat.
