In the jungle!

In my previous post I promised 2 cards, but the plumber arrived to plumb in the washing machine before I posted the second.

And then I had to clean out the blocked overflow pipe, which was totally gunked-up (technical phrase, that) with soap and fibres - ewww! The pong!

But now I can share another card I made for the Seize the Birthday challenge, and which was originally going to be for a boy but I think the jungle flowers make it more suitable for a girl who keeps reptiles. I know three!

The papers are Pink Petticoat 'Chevron' Collection. The Chameleon and the vegetation are from the 'In the Jungle' set by Woodware. I stamped the flowers and leaves several times, coloured them with Speccies, and cut them out to make a jungle scene. The leaves and flowers are only glued in the middle and the free ends are slightly curled to give some depth.

All together now: 'A wim-o-weh, A wim-oh-weh, A wim-o-weh, A wim-oh-weh!'

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
