Hello There Crafty Friends,
I am so excited and honored to have been asked to be a guest designer for...
This is my second post but will be back with another in December.

Here's my card...
  ...Here's what I used to make it...
Sizzix BIGkick Machine by Vintaj
Core'dinations Core Essentials Cardstock 'Neutrals'
Spellbinders Inspire 'Howling' Die
Spellbinders Shapeabilities 'Feathers' Die
We R Memory Keepers Embossing Folder 'Woodgrain'
Prima Marketing Comfort Craft Distressing Tool
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad 'Tea Dye'
Elizabeth Craft Designs Fine Pointed Scissors
Darice Hemp Cord 'Natural'
Scotch Foam Mounting Tape
Crayola Watercolor Paint 

...Here's how I made it... 
I embossed a piece of light yellow Core'dinations Core Essentials Cardstock using the We R Memory Keepers Woodgrain Embossing Folder. Then I used the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad on the embossed trees and on the sides of the paper. Next I made the card base with white cardstock. Then using the Prima Marketing Distressing Tool I went around the card, lightly on the fold edge. Then around the embossed paper. I then applied Scor-Tape to the back of the embossed paper and attached it to the card. Next I die cut the wolf on brown/white cardstock using the Spellbinders Inspire 'Howling' Die. Then using Elizabeth Craft Designs Fine Pointed Scissors I cut the moon outline off of the white wolf. I then glued the white moon outline onto the brown moon outline and painted it with yellow Crayola Watercolor Paint. Next I applied Scotch Foam Mounting Tape to the back of the wolf and attached it to the card. Then using the yellow Crayola Watercolor Paint I painted the card inside the moon outline. I die cut the feathers from a brown paper bag using the Spellbinders Shapeabilities 'Feathers' Die. Next I used the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad on the feathers. Then I cut a piece of the Darice Hemp Cord and tied it around the quills of the feathers and glued them onto the card.
