I've had a few days this week where I've done lots of crafting - the boys are off school for half term and I'm off with them too.  Usually I have good intentions of crafting but never get much done for one reason or another but this week I've been on a roll!

I'm a Design Team member for Jellypark and I love Claire's images plus there is a bonus as she is also an exclusive designer on Crafts U Print where I am a cardmaker too!  So when a topper sheet popped up I just had to get it!  There are two toppers on the sheet (pre coloured and for only 80p too!) and you can buy it here.  The other card I've made which is shown with the one below will be blogged over the weekend.

All I've done is added stickles to her wings and used a Nestie to cut her out.  I've added a black dotted line around the edge and layered onto some chocolate brown card.  To help with a layout I've followed the Feeling Sketchy sketch. The papers are from Dovecraft - Sugar and Spice 6x6 pad and again I've layered onto chocolate brown card.  I've added a faux stitch around the edges and some thin organza ribbon from my stash.
