This square card works perfectly for the Free 4 all challenge - to make a square card. It also works for the F4A533 - Walk on the wild side.
I stamped the meerkat family (there are 5 in one group), I stamped the image again to create a mask. Masked the image and stamped on the cactus and other single meerkats. I created three rows of meerkats. Coloured the scene and background. I used three different stamp sets to make the sentiment. I used an exacto knife to cut around the hands/arms of 6 meerkats so they would be hold the signs. I stamped the lizard three times, coloured them, cut them out and popped them up. I stamped one little meerkat and coloured it. Cut it out and popped it up. It is the third one from the left on the bottom row.
The card looks better in real life. I made this for one of my co-workers who is retiring tomorrow.

This is such a fun retirement card! I love all the meerkats and the way you masked and used them over and over. Now that I see how cute they are, I wish I had ordered them when they were available!!! Such a cute card, Pat. Favd.

I am SO impressed with your masking! If I didn't own this set myself, I would guess this was all one big stamp!! Expert coloring, too!!
