The sweet pea stampers challenge: all creatures great and small

Please click here for a chance to win a 2-day ticket for the Big Stamp & Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace 20-21 September

This is my design card for the new challenge for the next fortnight on the Sweet pea stampers challenge: all creatures great and small. Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team - and we hope you will join in our challenge.

The image is Norma J Burnell's Forest Guardian stamp (also available as a digi), inked with memento tuxedo black and coloured with spectrum noir pens. The shaped card blank was already decorated with the polka dots. I matted the image on to a snippet piece of Craftwork cards paper from long ago (think it was called sugar plum) and then matted on to deep pink mirror card (doesn't show up the shine on here, unfortunately. The flowers with centre brads are Panduro hobby and the swirls of gems were part of my recent prize from Flourish with a bling.
