Cupcake Craft have 'green, pink and brown' as their colours and 'animals and flowers' as a theme. I took a look at all the free download kits I have been getting from Summertime Designs and chose these fab papers from her Angel Mother set which include all these colours and flowers. The little dog image is Elzybells and is coloured with prismas and sansodor. The photo does not pick it up but the nose and the little caterpillar have been picked out with glossy accents.
I made the felt flowers with a Sizzix Originals die and some felt from the market- bargain! Chrisma Cardz have 'Tag it!' as their challenge so the greeting has been stamped onto a tiny tag, also cut with my Sizzix.
I followed the lovely sketch at Spoon Full of Sugar. I hope it was ok to take a few liberties with it- I used an oval because it fitted my stamp better and grouped the 3 flowers.
I am going to send this card to my lovely friend Helen with some new home images she needs inside so I made a simple pocket to hold them in the post. When I printed my papers I forgot to put in my special paper so it started printing on out cheapy standard stuff- much pressing of 'cancel' and a few naughty words later I had a little strip of paper which came in handy for decorating the inside!
