Happileigh Scrappin' #30 - Feature a Critter

We have a new challenge today over at Happileigh Scrappin' Challenges which has been set by Vicki and that is to feature a critter of some type on your project.

I have used a scene by Leigh called Country Hills and added dimension by decoupaging elements such as the treetop, the house and the bush and this whole foreground layer is added to a piece of pale blue card to emulate the sky. I cut it in a way to emulate the wonky frame aspect of the bottom.

I coloured the image with Promarkers creating a path for the For You Bear to walk down. I also added one of the ladybirds that I had leftover from another project I did.

To finish off I embellished the tree with some puffy stickers from Paperchase and a big gem sun in the sky with glitter pen rays.

The whole scene is added to a scalloped edge card which has been distressed with a brown inkpad.

There are loads and loads of Critter in the Happileigh Scrappin' Store and Leigh has also got some gorgeous new designs available. With every purchase you this image and sentiment free........

Also for every 3 images you purchase you can choose an extra one absolutely free. There are loads of fab images just itching to be played with so you will find it easy to spend your pennies I promise you :)

Please pop on over to see the lovely creations my Happi Sisters have added. There are lots of lovely cards to feast your eyes upon and they are all so different.

Remember, for our challenges you don't need to use a Happileigh Scrappin' image but if you do your entry counts twice and with freebies available here it is easy to use one of Leigh's fabulous digis.

We would love to see lots of entries in this challenge. Leigh gives away her lovely digis to the top 3 so it is well worth entering and me and the DT love to see your creations, so come on over to

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size - 6" square
Image - Country Hills & For You Bear by Happileigh Scrappin'
Embellishments - puffy stickers by Paperchase & large yellow gem from stash
Techniques - decoupage

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-
