Nursery Rhyme Digis

Over at Cuddly Buddly the latest releases from Sam at Lilyboo Designs is a range of Nursery Rhyme designs. In each digi set you get at least 1 character plus a background to go with it - take a look at the cards that the Cuddly Buddly team have been working on for some inspiration on how to put them all together. If you click on the digi image it will open and under the image you can see the cards that have been made using that design, click on each one and it will appear in the main screen.

Back to my card then, I've used 'Follow Me' better known to you as Mary had a little lamb. After colouring Mary and the little lamb I cut them out and placed in front of the wall - now that wall is going to be very useful with other images too, in fact Sam has tons of useful background type digi's and I've used an older one called 'flower arch' along with Mary in the card below.

All my colouring is done with Copics and I've inked the edges of the coordinating Lilyboo papers with Versamagic chalk ink - Spring Pansy for the pink papers and Aspen Mist on the aqua. Both cards are embellished with pearls made with my Waco pearl maker pen - pink on the first and cream on the second. On the second card I've had a play with my new Marianne English Roses dies and created the roses from the smaller die. The leaves I've cut from thick handmade paper which is why you can see a mark on one of the bottom leaves - it's in the paper and is a little bit of a rose petal.

By the Cute & Girly's monthly challenge theme for April is just that, cute and girly! So I'm entering either or both of my cards for their challenge, and for the chance to be a GDT member in June.

The One Stop Craft blog challenge is for spots and dots - I have used spotty dotty paper and the pearls are spotty dotty too!

Our Creative Corner have a recipe challenge to make things girly, include a handmade paper flower, ribbon and a touch of bling. My second card is for them with the lacy ribbon and the pearl bling along with my handmade flowers.

I'll have another of my cards made with Sam's Nursery Rhyme digis to share with you in a day or two - best get back to the colouring now! If you want to know anything about these cards, just drop me an email. Aga left me a comment on Saturday asking about how to use the Cuddly Buddly digi papers - I tried getting back to you Aga but my system couldn't recognise your email link, if you'd like to email me we can have a chat. I'm still way behind on commenting too but slowly catching up with you all - thanks for stopping by.

    Unfortunately you can only enter at BTC&G once with a card (but as many times as you like if it's a different craft each time), but you have followed the rules and haven't linked twice to get 2 entries, so if you win, you can just tell me which card you would like shown on the blog lol, because I wouldn't be able to choose between the two! :)
    Oh and good luck with the guest DT call!
