A Happy Mistake

This card is actually a mistake, because I made it for another DT project and then realised that I'd got carried away and had completely ignored the theme, so it didn't qualify.

Anyway, it fits this week's theme at Lili's Little Fairies which is 'Something New'.

My 'something new' is this little fella who just fell into my cart when I was last shopping at LOTV.

Seriously, their cart is dangerous, stamps constantly fall into it when I'm browsing.  And it seems to happen every time I shop there.  And of course I just can't possibly bring myself to remove them once they're in there.  So I just have to buy them.  Naturally!  ;0)

The Flowersoft that I've used for the snow is also new.  I only had green/meadow colour before, and thought I'd buy some white for snow.  I quite like it.  I'm not too sure about the snowflakes in the sky, but I like the bit on the ground.  I may need to practice more cos it went absolutely everywhere too!!

Despite the mess I made, I really like how this card turned out.  I hope the recipient does too, cos this one's been sent to a lovely friend !!
