Here it is in a Nutshell - Happy Birthday !

This frisky little squirrel makes a
cheerful  birthday ambassador.


Here is a side view.
 The base is a cat food can . After covering the can with a strip of scrapbooking paper and some rickrack I  hot glued a ribbon spool to the (open side) top.

 Since this is going to be a cake topper I made the squirrel double sided then added embellishments. I love the little walnut with it's birthday candle!

  Looking down.

He sat on my work table waiting for just the right finishing touch.. .

 I think these tiny embroidery daisies are it. 
Here are the images I used.

  1. I think the flowers did add the final touch!

  2. Such a clever use for a vintage card. I would love to see it on the cake!:-)
