The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge 36: Something New!

Morning, all! It's time for another challenge at The Squirrel and the Fox and this time we'd like to see Something New. That could be using new stash, or a card for a new baby or a new job!

Our sponsor is The Digi Garden who are offering 7 digis to a winner! Have a look at their cute images - the DT were lucky enough to be given some of the new stamps to play with, and they are gorgeous!

I used Molly's Polka Dot Heart she is so sweet!

I used a NEW Spellbinder's die for the mat, it's from a set called 'Opulent Ovals.' I used Speccies to colour her, and dotted pink stickles on the polka dots on the heart. The papers were free with a magazine, flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, and the ribbon is from stash.

I used a Woodware punch for the leaves, which are swiped with a Peeled Paint Distress Ink pad, and the butterfly is another Woodware punch with dots of Liquid Pearls on the body and stickles edging the wings. There are more liquid Pearls on the banner, the sentiment is a Polkadoodles stamp which is another freebie.

I decorated the inside as well.

I hope you'll all pop over to The Squirrel and the Fox and have a look at the cute creations of my fabulous teamies!

ETA: so sorry, I thought I'd scheduled this but it was marooned in Draft instead! D'oh!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
