I decided to use one of my favorite retired Stamp + Thin Cut sets. Yes there are even RETIRED stamp sets available in this sale!

Wild & Punny + Thin Cuts is such a cute set! All those cute animals and sentiments make it really fun to create a card! So let's go!

I think the llama is my favorite of the set. I stamped and used the Thin Cuts then used some marker to color it in.  For the background I used a stencil I made with the Fancy Borders Thin Cuts. I sponged green along the bottom for grass. I added some Stickles for tufts of grass and some sparkle.

This is the inside of card. I'll let you in on a little secret. When stamping the llama in the lower corner I got some ink where I didn't want it. I fixed it by stamping the llama on a piece of white cardstock and layering it on green. That covered the problem! There usually is a way to cover just about any oops made while creating.
