Polly Put The Kettle On

Hello All,

This is another card that I made at my mum's house. In all honesty I don't think I really like it...I have made this card using a template, any time I try this I always think it looks naff...the idea is there but I don't seem to have the ability to execute it very well. Also I am not sure about the papers i used....don't get me wrong I do love these papers...I just don't know if they work as a teapot?!!!...however I only had a limited supply of stuff with me.

The papers are: "Basic Grey" and the image is "Krafting Kimmie"

This is my entry for:

Creative Card Crew - Blooming Marvelous
C.R.A.F.T - fancy Floral
Cupcake - Happy Hour
Crafty Cardmakers - step away from square

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls
