I particularly like this one with Bluebell looking at the little squirrel on the branch, and wanted to use this image to make a card for a special friend who's been a real rock for me recently. ;0)
I coloured the image to match the pretty new Wild Rose Studio papers, and even the hubster was looking at the papers saying how much he liked them. Now that is a first!
To top of the WRS hat trick I've also used one of their new dies, and chalked the flowers in purple and leaves in green, to match the papers. Because the papers are quite detailed, I didn't want to hide them up with lots of embellishments (plus the recipient is a bit of a C&S kind of gal) so I just added a bit of natural coloured twine (which I coloured with the wedge end of a purple marker), and secured it around a purple button.
The button actually looks really pale in the photo because the light is shining off it, but it's actually a bit darker in real life. A little trio of purple pearls and some pale green liquid pearls on the die and image finished it off.
