I have a new stamp from House Mouse Designs depicting the happy hoppers called 'Tall Tales'. It reminded me of the three girls that my step daughter has, although I doubt they would all set still long enough to all read the same book at the same time!
I seem to have used a lot of green in this card which is unusual for me.
I matted two pieces of designer paper onto green core'dinations cardstock and then wrapped a ribbon round the overlap of the papers. This was then matted and layered onto green mirri card and white card.
I coloured the image using Promarkers and matted it onto green glitter silk cardstock - both were cut out using Spellbenders curved rectangle dies. Having attached this to the card I added a bow to the top of the chair and a matching bow to the lower left hand corner. To the upper right hand corner of the design I added a flower. Buttons were added to the card and a sentiment matted onto more glitter silk cardstock and cut out with a curved rectangle die was attached using foam pads. Die cut butterflies, using a Tonic die, were added to two of the corners.
