DELIGHTFUL THURSDAY DT



Hello Everyone...

So happy that another Thursday has come round so fast as I've been dying to share this fun card using a brilliant and cute image from Digital Delights  ...

This is Gemma the Giraffe ..and photographed in the most wonderful sunlight and all by accident...



There she is...standing in her jungle surrounded by butterflies as the late afternoon sun does it's thing..

Gemma was coloured with copics and I added the usual MB trees..fiskars grass on a backing paper with bamboo shoots  and leaves which seemed perfect for a jungle themed card.

The sun is a button and popped onto some hessian and added to the rows too and a row of flowers which fell off 'My Lady's' floral decoration...

There was a close up photo of Gemma but I accidently deleted it...but here is a side view..



The butterflies were suspended using the plastic cover off my foam tape packet..cut into strips and they wobble and float around..

So there we go...hopefully a little bit of inspiration using a delightful image from Digital Delights  and if you would like to see some more fabulous inspiration you could check out the blog HERE
