Mini beasts!

Happy Monday everybody! Well, it isn't normally for me, but I had a day off work and it was fab! The weather turned out surprisingly gorgeous so went down to the coast and had lunch at a marina, then a long stroll along the beach and finished off with sitting in the sun for a couple of hours and swimming with the Labs in the sea - wonderful!

To the card! I used the sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, but of course I've missed the deadline again! I also used inspiration from C.R.A.F.T. challenge to use mini beasts (what a great way to describe insects!)....

I love that felt ribbon - so tactile and yummy! It's only 2 inches wide so I butted up three lengths of it together to create a wide border. I also trimmed off a few flowers to decorate the inside. It's brilliant stuff!

Should be back tomorrow with another card - I'm on a roll!

Papers/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Boy paper
Mediums: Copic Caios
Stamps: Aspects of Design dragonfly stamp set
Accents: Queen and Co felt fusion "ribbon", BasicGrey buttons
Tools: Nestabilities label die (inside card)

Hi Mary,

What a lovely card this is! Like a lot what you did with the felt, good idea to put three next to each other and also use it separate on the inside! Lookd great!!

Hugs, Wendy
