Papertake weekly challenge - something new

Something new is the challenge at Papertake Weekly!

I am going for my new image of snails and toadstools.
I have to say I loved making this card for Caleb who will be five at the end of January.
He's rather obsessed by snails at the moment so it was created very much with him in mind.

I have used the joy fold again that is shown at Dutch Dare but adapted the sizes to make a larger card.
Coloured with copics and Basic Grey Lime Rickey papers - so fun!

I have used the extas on the image sheet to decorate the inside.


  1. I love your card! So bright and funny. The image is amazing! I love it.
    Hugs, Magda x

  2. wow colourful and beautiful Claire
