Here's my card!

The image I've used is "Camping Tween"
She's due to be released today in the

I coloured her up with my promarkers and I wanted to cut her out as a round image but
she just didn't fit inside any of my round cutters!
Silly me forgot to size the image properly!!!
In the end I drew around the outside edge of a scalloped nestie with a pencil & hand cut the shape!
I made my 140x140mm base card from a sheet of brown cardstock. Which has the fold at the top & stands like a tent to reflect my camping image!
For the layout I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday

 I'm having such fun using sketches for layouts at the moment!

The papers I have used were very kindly given to the DT, by Stampin Dragon Designs, to play with!
I just love them & didn't hesitate to make the most of them. The papers are from two different sets (Coffee Cream used for the layout & Essentials 5 used for the fern leaves) I think they work really well together!
As you can see I made my PUFFY bit by punching out some fern leaves using my Woodware Punch and some of the DPs. I embossed them to make them curl up a bit & then simply layered them around the image, to make a leafy wreath, sticking them down as I went using my quickie glue pen!
I feel it's like looking through the trees & seeing her at her little campfire, toasting her marshmallows!
The sentiment was from Sentiments 4 You & was cut out with a scalloped circle nestie.

I coloured it with promarkes & attached with foam pads for dimension.
The only other thing I added was a couple of square gems to fit in with the sketch!
I do hope you can find the time to join in with us at Digi's With Attitude! this week!
