Follow Your Heart

This card was made for Mo's Challenge #102: Furry Friends.  I have had this image for such a long time.  It feels really good to finally make some time to use some of the images I've collected.                                                                                                                                                                                    All of the papers are from my stash.  I believe I bought them all at JoAnn's.  The square with the scalloped border is a Nestabilities die.  I'm not quite sure where I got the sentiment.  The image is colored with Copics and I edged the picture with Stampin' Up pastels.                                                                                

It took me the longest time to get this anchor done.  I had pretty much forgotten how to use Make the Cut with my Cricut.  I found the free svg online, but couldn't figure out how to make it cut.  Finally, after much persistence, I got it done.  I was just hitting the wrong button. Only took an hour and a half to figure that out.  Think I'll remember next time?  Probably not!

Copics:  B21, B23, B24, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, E00, E02, E07, E25, E30, E31, E34, E35, E37, E50, R11, YR15, YR20, YR30, YR31
