Today we have another segment in the widly popular Critters collection called "Critters Down Under".  Yep- it's all about critters from Australia!!  I decided to create a cute little baby card using the Kangaroo, because she happens to have a little baby in her pouch!  Here is what I made!

3. Round the bottom corners of a vintage cream cardstock block; then adhere.
