Fluttery Butterflies and a goat

I made this card for my recent post on Girl Talk (Dani Mogstad's design team blog). Its difficult to tell, but the frame and butterflies are all raised, and the edges of the grass, frame and butterflies are inked for definition. The original antennae on Dani's digital images were impossible to neatly cut out so I fell back on a favourite solution and used craft wire. The butterflies were finished with a little glitter glue for sparkle - who doesn't need a little sparkle here and there sometimes :)

I have to tell you about a fab website for free hand-written fonts and doodles - all the owner of the site wants is a thank you (her terms are so generous and worth reading to remind yourself of just how kind people can be!). Its called Fonts for Peas.
One final thing to share today: This is a layout I made based on a LO by a lady called Dawn March - its of Alex being walked by a young goat at the children's farm Abbotsbury, during our lovely holiday last May. Roll on holiday time this year!
