A little birdie told me.......

Hello my crafty friends...well here with us today it is dull and dreich! A very autumnal day!

Today I have a card to show which Janny and Dena, my fellow Sugar Nellie DT members, will also be sharing. We decided this week to colour 'A Little Birdie Told Me' from Gorjuss set 1.

I decided I wanted to try a scrappy look which Tiets does so fantastically. So my card is inspired by her style. I am really pleased with how it turned out and I don't often say that about my own cards!!

The image is coloured with prisma colour pencils and blended with sansador. All the edges have been inked with 'Walnut Stain' Distress Ink.

You will have seen a lot of these circular sentiments recently. I just love them and my dear friend Kathy kindly sent some to me.I chose to decorate the inside in the same layout and papers as the outside.

Thanks for popping by and I hope you have time to check out the blogs of Janny and Dena. You won't be dissappointed!

Before I go I want to let you know about the adorable new Stampavie stamps that Elaine now has over at Quixotic Paperie. She has the new Helz Cuppleditch and Sarah Kay stamps in stock NOW!
