Crafty Calendar February Challenge - Two or More Layers

Wow!  Where did January go?  Here we are in February and ready for the next challenge at Crafty Calendar.   The challenge this month is to use two or more layers on your card.  Our sponsors this month are Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and Crafty Ribbons.

So, let me introduce you to Keith the Cool Koala from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.  Don't you think he is adorable?  He was such fun to create.  I printed him onto a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock and a piece of Shimmer White then, fussy cut the inside of his ears and belly from the Shimmer White and added those to the Smoky Slate image.  Then, I fussy cut the whole image.  Oh, his nose was fussy cut from the white one and colored using a Black Wink of Stella Brush.  His nose does have a wee bit of sparkle.  I also added a touch of SU Blush Blossom to his ears.  I added Keith to the card using a Mini Wobble Spring.  He's such a jolly koala!

I started with a card base of Taylored Expressions Sugar Cube cardstock.  I used the TE Splatter Embossing Folder to add texture to the layer of TE Cookie Monster cardstock and added a piece of patterned paper from the Hello Happiness 6x6 Paper Pack from TE.

The sentiment is from the Epic Celebration stamp set by Stampin' Up! and stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Poppy Seed ink from Taylored Expressions.  The banner was made using the Triple Banner Punch.  The finishing touch was adding some TE Cookie Monster Enamel Dots and some TE Sugar Cube Enamel Dots.

Here's a short video I made to show the wiggle and the wobble.  It's my very first video and I have no idea what I'm doing.  ☺  Hopefully, it works and you all get to see Keith's moves!
