Throwback Thursday Challenge - Zooballoo Card

This is the the other card I made yesterday. I made this for Emma's throwback Thursday Challenge at My Creative Time.

My husband is a Police Officer and every once in a while he has to go on an extradition and brings criminals from another state back to Utah. These can take a few days so as a reminder to be safe and to know that I'm thinking of him I like to leave cute, fun cards in his luggage for everyday that he's gone. When I saw this cute octopus in my Zooballoo cartridge I just knew I had to add it to my stash. :)

This card is an A2 sized card. All the papers are from my scrap pile. (I have 3 drawers full!) I've been trying to use them up so unless a challenge has specific colors I'll be using only scraps for the next few weeks. The Octopus was cut at 2 1/4 in. and stamped with my Peachy Keen Everyday face assortment stamps. The circle was cut after I traced a ribbon spool that was sitting next to me while trying to figure out what to do with the octopus ;). The paper was inked with brown, I added some white dots with a white gel pen, and traced him with a yellow Martha Stewart glitter maker, then mounted it on foam tape.

This is the inside of the card. Hope you enjoyed the card and have a great day. :)
