Fred She Said - A teacup of pansies

I coloured some of the new release pansies from Fred She Said the other day so thought it was about time I made a card with them.
I followed the sketch at Create 4 Fun for this one and used the Teacup and Pansies digi and also 3 single panisies from the Line of Pansies Digi set. As the name suggests, the line of pansies set has a line of pansies lol, but it also has some single pansies with and without leaves and some leaves on their own as well. You can see both sets here. Tracey has also done some coloured versions too, perfect if you need to make a card in a hurry, you can just print, cut and stick :)

So here's my card. Sorry about the pic, the colours look a bit washed out here.

The base paper is Anna Griffin and the strip is a freebie I got in a magazine a while back.
The pansies and teacup are coloured with Polychromos pencils and Sansodor.
I've kept the card simple to show off the pretty pansies but I did print the teacup image twice and cut out the pansies so I could layer them on top of the main image.

Here's a close up of the teacup so you can see the dimension better.

It's miserable weather here in Aberdeen, it's stopped raining today but it's still sooo cold. At least the white stuff is gone though! Just hope it doesn't come back!!
I've got loads to do today for DT work and also the By The Cute and Girly challenge Design Team call ends tomorrow, so I have been busy looking at all the blogs of everyone who has applied. I know it's going to be so hard to choose just a few dt members from all the people who have applied!
If you would like to apply to be on the By The Cute and Girly team, you have until tomorrow to do so. All you need to do is email me with a link to your blog (or somewhere else I can see your work) and tell me about about yourself (because I'm nosey lol) and what kinds of crafts you do.
Remember By The Cute and Girly challenge is for all kind of crafters, not just card makers so you can apply no matter what craft you like to do :)
And this is also the last day for you to get your entires into this months "Love" challenge and there will be a new challenge posted in the morning, so you better get your skates on if you want to enter before the ne challenge is posted.

Thanks for stopping by today.
