Alpaca or Llama?

There's a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge!  

The team is challenged to create a Holiday Project.  
Come and join us at where it is Anything Goes; can't wait to see you there! 

Now, I do claim to know a bit about horses and dogs, but I know NOTHING about llamas or alpacas.  Yes, I do know there is a difference and this particular digi is a Llama.  However, I'm going to make him into an alpaca for this card! 

Now that I have that out of the way, I can continue on the card itself!  ;)  This card was created in Cricut Design Space using the Print and Cut feature....wait, why try to do all the typing when I can show you!  

Grab a cup of your favorite beverage & a snack and join me on YouTube or simply play the video below!  The first part shows how I created it in Design Space and the last part is where I put it all together since the cactus and alpaca...I mean llama (hee hee) are 3 dimensional!  

Material list:  

Digi Stamp:  Llama Cactus 
Polkadoodles Papers:  Stars from Feel the Music Work & Play 8; Green Plaid from Winnie Wednesday Halloween; Background from Winnie Special Moments paper Heaven 4
Ink: CTMH Sweet Leaf (Retired)
Copic Sketch MarkersCopic Ciao Markers
Copic Liner
Adhesives:  Scrappy Tape 1"Scotch ATGZig 2 Way Glue Pen
Cricut Design Space:  Cricut Access

This card is off to the following challenges:  

Inkspirational Challenges:  3 or 5  ~(3 gems & 3 layers)
Colour Crazy Challenge:  AG hand Colored
Simply Create Too:  AG with twist of Pattern Paper
Aud Sentiments:  AG with a Sentiment
The Outlawz Sunday Songs:  Summer Holiday
The Card Concept:  I was inspired by the colors and cactus in the picture.  I think this card fits into "Layered Freestyle"?  Not sure!  I have a lot of trouble placing my work into the "proverbial" boxes!  ;)  I'm not even sure what my overall style is!
