The Squirrel and the Fox DT - Challenge #76 Spring or Autumn

Oh dear, I'm sorry I'm late again! Here at last is my card for the challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox and our theme is Spring or Autumn. Our fab sponsor is Oak Pond Creations who will reward a lucky winner with 3 free digis from their store!

The DT were privileged to use images from OPC - I fell for Hide and Seek Ladybirds I think it's so pretty, and perfect for decoupage!

So that is what I did!


I went for 'Spring' (even though in the Northern Hemisphere we are heading towards Autumn!)

The photo is at an angle to show the layers. I coloured everything with Promarkers and fussy cut the ladybirds and flower before layering with foam pads. The cute ladybirds have all been Glossy Accented!

I layered the image on blue pearlised card, and used my Corner Chomper to chomp the corners! The papers are a magazine freebie, they are Raspberry Road 'Love Lives Here.' I used a Cheery Lynn flourish die for the vines, and the flowers are made with Woodware punches, with gems and pearls in the centre.

The sentiment is gold embossed, cut and layered with spellbinders Nestabilities, and comes from the Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler. I love the fun script!

I hope you are all having a good week! I am involved with the annual Holiday Club that my Church runs at the end of August - we expected 20 children under 10, and 34 arrived! It's always a very fun week!

Do go and see the lovely creations that my teamies have made, I'm sure they will inspire you to have a go yourselves!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
