'Zoo Babies' Cards

There's nothing like sitting down to make cards, 
and having them turn out just like you pictured them in your head :)

The cards I'm sharing today were inspired by THIS CARD.  
I loved the simple layout, and knew that I could make lots of cards 
in a short amount of time.

When I was making the elephant card, I realized that I didn't have 
a scalloped circle punch large enough to layer with the 2" circle punch.  
So I made use of what punches I DO have, and came up with this fun little trick.

I punched 2 Flourish Squares like this...

And then glued them together to make a scalloped circle. 

It ended up being the perfect size for what I needed!
Love it when that happens!
