Rainy Tuesday

>> Tuesday, 6 October 2009

Autumn has well and truly arrived; the last couple of days have been grey and wet and its back to wearing wellington boots to walk the dog rather than flip flops.

This card is for my husbands old flatmate who has just become a dad again.  I used the fab sketch on this weeks Inspirational Sketches Challenge blog and I’m also entering this in the Creative Card Crew challenge which this week is ‘Celebrations’.

Paper: Winter Wonderland from Ladybug & Friends

Embellishments: Paper roses & cherry blossom, ribbon

Tools: Cuttlebug corner die, Martha Stewart border punch, Leon Em leaf punch, oval nesties
