Fabulous Little Critters

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Just a quick post this evening, because if you saw what the post lady dropped through my door below then you will understand the need to ink up immediately and create something gorgeously cute :)

So with out too much of a do

Here is my first creation with my new little critter stamps
Base layer and contrast is some dark green hammered card from the Hobby House, layered with some of the green and yellow Papermania Capsule Mono collection papers.  The doily punch has been used on the centre strip and some lovely lace underneath this .  The central ribbon, tag ribbon and bow are from the green Papermania collection.  The outer frame of the image is a Marianne Creatable die and the centre circle is a grand circle (the smallest one), the sentiment tag is a spellbinders one.  The little green brads are from the Hobby House and the little pearls are too.  Please notice the full colour selection from one pack gradienting to lighter towards the image plate.  The image plate has been edged with Tim Holtz distress inks "Mustard Seed"
The image has been coloured with copics

here is a little close up of the image

I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday for the inspiration for this card.

The "AWWWWWW" factor just went up about 10 notches with this card! Super cute!

As a sidenote...every time I come here, something slows down the loading of the page and makes it unbearably slow to type in a comment. I'm using Firefox as my browser.....just thought I'd mention it in case anyone else is having the same issue.
