Cuddles and Hugs

I have made this card for this weeks Tuesday Morning Sketches, Kathy has provided us with a fab sketch this week and this is my card:

I have used two of my favourite cd's, the image is from Joanna Sheen's 'Daisy and Friends', this cd is full of gorgeous images drawn by Lynn Carter and the papers are from the Willow Designs 'Polly Pickleberry' cd.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I printed the sheet out twice so that I had four images the same size, I then cut out three of the images to make layers of decoupage - I just can't help myself!  I followed the sketch quite closely, I only moved the sentiment.

This is the inside of my card, I have decorated it to complement the front:

Card Recipe:

Image:  Joanna Sheen - Daisy and Friends
Papers:  Willow Designs - Polly Pickleberry
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Embellishments:  flowers, heart buttons and ribbon from stash
