Happy Days...

Good Morning...

Really pleased to report that there is happy news here at the tanglemouse house!

This is my first blog post as a member of the Design Team at Creative Inspirations - I am over the moon to be asked by Natalie to join in and really looking forward to it.

This weeks challenge at Creative Inspirations is Feathered Friends/Animals.  This is such a fun challenge for the week before Easter and a great time to let creativity go into overdrive!  The prize for the lucky winner is a £20 gift voucher from Hey Little Magpie

On we go then - my DT card for this week's challenge -

I used a lovely Lili of the Valley Stamp - 'Armfuls of Daisies', I really like the expression on this little rabbit's face as he resolutely marches on to deliver the flowers, scattering a few on the way!  I thought this image was perfect for a rocker card, which is something I have never made before- first time for everything!  (On reflection, I would probably make the 'rocking' part a bit larger next time though).

I used Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Dies to cut the elements of my rocker card which is all circles.

I coloured the image with Copics and used papers by Lili of the Valley from the Up, Up and Away Pastel Dreams range to mount the image and create layers.

I die cut some floral sprays and a ribbon from the papers and finally I added flowers from The Ribbon Girl along with some adhesive gems by Papermania

...and here we first DT card...armfuls of daisies...everywhere!
