Wild thing!


I had a request for a card for a little boy who is all into soldiers and camouflage etc and I remembered seeing this cute little image from Saturated Canary so off I went and got it!
I paper pieced his outfit using the camouflage papers.

Image - Saturated Canary
Papers - freebie camouflage ones and funky fairies grid paper
Embellishments - stars from Especially for You cd, punched stars, mesh fibre
Medium - coloured with promarkers

I would like to enter this into
Moving Along with the Times - one for the guys
Little Miss Muffet - pieced off
Here come the boys - paper piecing
Sentimental - paper piecing and sentiment
There She Goes - paper piecing

Its been a lovely afternoon here which I spent in the garden with a few helpers. Weeds now under control again and grass is nicely cut.
Hope you have enjoyed your day too.

Pinky, perfect card for a boy. I'm sure he's going to love this. Great image for the card and beautifully coloured. Love the paper-piecing. I have a hard time with boy/male cards myself especially the embellishments. You did a terrific job.
Hugs,
Norma

Great card Pinky. Adhamh will love it I'm sure.
There are four obvious wedding images on that FW cd - there may be others less obvious to me of course.
