Heartfelt Creations Inspiration Wednesday

Hello friends!  Here's a fun card with the Oakberry Lane Collection from Heartfelt Creations.

This cute little squirrel was just the right image to create this open aperture card.  

You can barely see the clear nylon string so he looks like he's suspended in mid air.  You'll find all the directions on how to make this card for yourself below.
