Sweet Stampin - Animals :)



Awww, I was feeling really ready for spring when I made this card, and its not stopped sleeting or trying to snow since! :) lol.

So, our new theme today over at Sweet Stampin is 'Animals', and we are sponsored this week by Di's Digi Downloads, and one of our regular monthly sponsors Joanna Sheen.

I was really chuffed we had this theme, as I always seem to neglect or forget my Penny Black stamps, and they are just lovely to use.   I hand stitched the papers - no idea what they are, as they were from my scraps box, and followed Donna's great sketch on the Sunday Sketch & Stamp blog.  The letters were cut on my digi-cutter.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Joanna Sheen Challenge - Celebration
Sunday Sketch & Stamp - Fabby sketch
Stamptacular Sunday - Seeing spots
Bling it On - New Beginnings
Emerald Faeries - Green & Yellow
By The Cute & Girly - New Beginnings.
Papertake Weekly - Happy Highlights
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss - Welcome

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope everyone has a smashing weekend!

Delightful soft colours & I just love those daisies & your glittering of them. Super the way your ribbon edge picks up the shine of the Candi & your pearls are a lovely addition & pick out the polka dots nicely.
Very cold here today too & snow on the mountains opposite.
