Wee Cutie

Hi everyone and thanks for calling by to visit today. Sorry I've not been around but last week I thought I'd have a ride out in the car to my Dad's and also into the village to do a spot of shopping and I've spent the last few days regretting it! Why oh why can't our bodies age at the same rate as our minds?! Anyway I gave myself the proverbial kick up the b... and made this card.

First off I used a freebie image from Sylvia Zet which I coloured with Promarkers and if you want this image for yourself you can find it here. I embossed a leftover piece of card with an Embassalicious folder  - this is actually a 6x6 inch folder but I think it works okay on smaller pieces of card too - and rounded all the corners with a punch before sticking to the base card. Then I added some die-cut flowers - the sprig is Marianne Designs and the daisies are Cheery Lynn with some card candi centres - and a silver peel-off sentiment.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Allsorts challenge 'sabulous florals'
Mod Squad challenge 'the die's the thing'
Happy Little Stampers challenge 'anything goes with dies'
Cute Card Thursday challenge 'kiddies / babies'

Love To Scrap challenge 'anything goes'
