Wild Thing


I think the reason I'm seeing so many cards in the Spring theme is that everyone is just getting a little tired of Winter. Right? This, however, reminds me more of Fall! Just something a little different right now.

The image and sentiment are both from CTMH - In the Wild and Wild Thing. I also used Autumn Terracotta ink from CTMH and Archival Black. For paper I used Tangerine Tango from SU, Very Vanilla, and textured black. The patterned paper is from Paper Studio. I sponged around the vanilla cardstock, used my scallop edge punch, added several small brads, and tied raffia. I think the layout was one I had seen on Pals Paper Arts.

Thanks for stopping by.................

Lynn, I'm loving the giraffe. I know I just made spring themed cards. Guess it is because winter is almost over. I hope.
