Cute Card Thursday



Cute Card Thursday has a RED and GREEN theme - This was my first visit to this challenge..

Used one of my H'Anglar images from LIM coloured with my trusty watercolours - I don't know why but I love using these kinds of colours for painting...
The card stock is Core'dination and the scroll paper is from The Paper Co, I used BG Wassaill for one of the layers and embossed it with my Cuttlebug dot folders then highlighted with stickles.
Added two decorative border strips and teeny pearls.
The rafia and giant button is from my stash - in fact the button is quite old, my mum had it for years and I snaffled it!!! Shhh!!
