2 Peas in a Pod


This little beauty is the card I made for Paul for Valentines's day. It is part of a digistamp set called Romantic Vegetables from Little Musings by SJ. I follow her on Facebook and as soon as I saw these 2 little peas in a pod I KNEW that this was the image. However, due to IT and printer issues I nearly didn't get to print it off in time. My knight in shining armour came to the rescue once more. (love you loads sweetie xxx)

I used a very simple sketch from Order of the Opus Gluei as I wanted the image to be the main focal point. It has been coloured with Promarkers and I paper pieced the peas and the front of the pod to add dimension. There is a tiny heart on the image but I covered it up with a gold brad to tie in the brad and gems on the velvet ribbon (one of my Hobbycraft bargains, 29p for 2m!) I matted the image on a Nestie with a gold gilding pen border.

The paper is from the Woodland folks range by Papermania and the sentiment is a digi from Doodle Pantry which has been cut out using a Quickutx cookie die.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:-
