I think other times that I have used this stamp set I have only used one animal or bird in the tree, but I decided to use both this time. I got my inspiration for this card by the squirrels that have decided to share the bird feeder with our birds. No matter what we do they are determined to eat out of it and there is no corn in the seed we buy. This is for my great nephew who turned 21, this age is hard to make cards for, not young anymore but he is in medical school so he isn't exactly older either.
I stamped the tree base and then the leaves, colored the squirrel with markers and cut him out and used a couple of different small ink pads to ink the bird and cut him out.
