Hobby Cutz 42 Flora and Fauna

The challenge at Hobby Cutz this week is Flora and Fauna, and we are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments. I have used a Crafty Sentiments image from the Benson Bear range on my card.

42 Flora and Fauna

I coloured Benson with my copics, and added some glitter to his flower and also to the edge of the diecut mat that he is printed on.

The papers are from KaiserCraft’s Chanteuse Paper pad, and the ribbon and flower (Prima) are from my stash. The gorgeous swirls are lazer cuts from Hobby Cutz. I know I am on the team, but they truly are excellent value for money as I had these in my stash from before I was picked for the DT. Beautiful intricate designs and very reasonably priced.

I realise I have obscured quite a bit of the lovely lazer cut so here is a pic from Hobby Cutz’ website of the scroll in all it’s glory….. 4 in the pack for £1.35!!!
