Slugs and Snails

Yep, I'm still working my way through the large shoe box full of offcuts of digi papers! I'm determined to see the bottom of it this year and not to transfer the contents into a larger box!

For this card I've used a dark red base card and then the spotty layers are from Funky Hand - Rainbow Polkadots download which have been printed in different sizes so I got different sized dots!  I had to be creative with the red and white spotty paper as I didn't quite have enough - the 'missing bit' is under the image so you'll never know!

The image is a pre coloured Sassy Cheryl from a kit of 5 I bought from Crafts U Print.  Sometimes its just easier to print than to try and colour!  I've added a dotted blue line around the edge of the image with a gel pen.  The embroidery thread is from my stash.
