A frog and a mouse

I've been busy again; I have two more cards to show you all today. This first one was born from me playing about with some of my Whimsy images. I love this is so cute!

I've made this card for the ABC Challenge which is A for "Anything goes" and they think it would be nice if the card incorporated animals. The layout is based loosely on the BG sketch because I enjoyed it so much when I made the second card in this post. Cards always look so flat when the pictures are taken from the front, so here's another snap that shows the layers.

Items Used:
Whimsy Frog Stamp
DCWV Far East papers
Distress inks: Broken China and Pine Needles.
Butterfly stamp from the Papermania Candyfloss and Marshmallow stamp set.
Whispers Words Sentiment
Papermania square brad
Ribbons from my stash.
Glamour Dust

This next card is for the following challenges:
Whiff of Joy - colour challenge of Pink and Brown
Basic Grey Challenge- Sketch Challenge - loved it!
LOTV challenge - Charmed (It is there under the flower. I've only just noticed the wind made it swing sideways on)

Items used:
Henry Mouse Whiff Of Joy Stamp
Basic grey papers: Sugared and Offbeat
Clare Curd's Sentiment Stamp
Flowers and ribbons from my stash.

Thanks for looking.

Sharon xx
