Blogspot Challenge - A Child's Card

Hi folks, Tuesday again! Which means, today is another Cuttlebug Blogspot challenge.
This week’s theme is a Child's card featuring an animal... hummmmm...Here is my take on the theme..
With the Easter holiday's fast approaching, I suspect many teenagers will take the time to start "cramming" for their exams shortly after they go back to school after the Easter break! So, my project is a Good Luck in your exams card...I started off by cutting out Olly the Owl through the Cuttlebug using a Go Kreate Die.Assembling the pieces togetherand then adding some "googly" eyes to bring him to life and give him some character.I then cut out 2 leaf swirls (my current fave die!) using the Cheery Lynn Die Fanciful Flourish (B117), one in Brown and one in Green card stock.With the Green Flourish, I cut off the leaves. Which, if you are just after a Flourish is a great additional use for this die!I then attached the Green Leaves to the Brown Flourish to form my branch.This was then attached to my prepared base card, notice how the swirl of the branch links with the number 5 in the centre of the card and the little apple towards the bottom left of the card (as you look at it) has his little leaf hat on! All co-inkidinks! not planned!The branch makes an ideal place for Olly the Owl to perch on.I then made up a little rhyme for my sentiment. For those of you who are outside of the UK, GCSE's are our Secondary (High School) exams taken by teenagers before they move onto higher education! Just a little bit of info for you there...So, there you go.. A child’s card with an animal.. Don't forget to pop on over to the Cuttlebug Blogspot to see what my fellow Design Team members have created under this week’s theme..
Thanks for checking us out and see you soon.
