Flora & Fauna - Charisma Cardz

Good Morning :)  Back again today with my card for our new challenge over at Charisma Cardz where this week our theme is 'Flora & Fauna', and we are generously sponsored by The Stamping Boutique.

This was a great excuse to get out my PB's and use this adorable Hedgie image which I coloured with Pro-markers.  I hand-stitched K&Co papers (from my scraps box) onto white bazzil card and punched a border with my favourite MS Doily punch.  I used a mix of Memory Box and Spellbinder dies on this, and a McGill punch for the white fronds.  The flowers are WOC and the sentiment is Pink Petticoat.

I will be entering this card in the below competitions:

Songbird Challenges - Anything Goes
Penny Black & More - Whiskers or Wings
Dream Valley - Die Cuts & Punches
Crafters Companion - Best Friends
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Bingo - ribbon, free, blooms
Cute Card Thursday - Tag You're It
Do You Stack Up - 4 Legged Friends

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and all the lovely comments.  I am a bit slow at getting round this last couple of weeks, but I will catch up soon :)

Victoria said...

Beautiful detail. I love the fern branch with those lovely flowers and the tag.

Paula (PEP) said...

Love your echoing of the flowers in the pot with your carnation-type embellisment & doesn't that spiny flower just put you in mind of Hedgie's prickles too - nice bit of brain trickery/suggestion going on there. Love your threading of the ric rac ribbon through the die-cut.
