CUTE AND DAINTY

Get your glasses on for this one. It is a little busy.

Look at this dainty little snail sitting on a tree stump looking all pretty. This layout is one from Sketch Saturday. It was another fun one. I entered it into the Charisma Cardz Thursday Craft Challenge - Going Dotty. All the little rhinestones and the dotted background paper are considered dots. I also entered it in the Cute Card Thursday challenge - Bit O' Bling. It is also being entered in the Creative Inspirations Challenge and Daring Cardmakers.

The image is two stamps from Whiff of Joy. I masked the snail,then stamped the tree stump. The snail was cut out a second time and popped her up to give a 3D effect. All of the images are colored with Prismas. They seemed to blend better for the look I was trying to achieve.
I carried the snail through to the inside of the card. The only difference between this one and the one on front is that I airbrushed the background.
Thank you for looking and please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
