Sour Cream pouch

Over on there was a challenge to make a 'sour cream carton' using Pink Petticoat papers, and decorate it. This ended up being much brighter than I had planned, and the pale pink heart paper is a bit lost under the paper-pieces trees and owls! I wanted a design that would make use of the twisting sides of the pouch, and went for the tree because they fill the upper part of the sides as they widen. I added a cheerful greeting printed out from the computer. The owl and tree pattersn are from the latest issue of Creativity magazine.

You are a Princess

This card uses some of the latest stamps from Both the castle and the girl come from the 'Princesses' set, as do the small words on the ribbon. The background paper came in a pack from a pound shop - it's so pretty I wish I could remember which one! The buttons which spell 'Princess' were part of the prize from Craftime, and I thought they'd go beatutifully with these images. I added some sequin flowers and gem butterfly to the watercoloured images, and tied it all together with a ribbon.
