The leaves are punched with woodware punch, corner details is Cuttlebug die. Design paper is for DCWV paper pack, have used all the purple now so in need of more purple DP (Ohh what shall i get??)

Sunny Days

This is a shadow card i made with Cuddly Buddly graphics and stamps. It what is called a 'shadow card', i followed a very good tutorial on Splitcoast stampers changing the dimensions slightly. The stamp is Bikini bear, she is coloured with Promarkers and added to the scenery made with the 'sunny days' and 'Patchwork blue' downloads from CB. I wanted to create the feeling of a warm summers day strolling along the beach, i just love the little crab the way he is jumping put of the water lol.. The wavy greeting stamps is Seven sentiments.

I have made this card for my MILs birthday tomorrow, i hope she likes it! Its been a while since i have done any decoupage, forgot how fiddly it is lol.. I can't remember the name of this decoupage which is a shame as i think its quiet cute, i am sure someone will know.
The papers i have used are HOTP and a forgot i had these lovely papers, they where stashed away in my crafts room upstairs. I have used my MS doily punch and the flowers are made with a quickutz die and retro punch, little leaves are from a woodware punch, little bit of bling added into the middle.
