Keeping it simple and..... an accident....

By keeping it simple I find myself struggling to say something! tehehee

I have a couple of challenges for this card
Saturday Spot Light - clean it up
Bee Crafty - Embossing

And a bit of an accident....
Well I would not normally put pink and green together but I coloured an image in with my water colour pencils some time ago, the image was stamped for me by Uma thanks hunny!
I love Guinea pigs for those of you that know me know I have 8 guinea pigs,
This is Lulu my best girl she is so tiny
but she is fully grown and had several babies lol
This picture was taken about 2 years ago when we first got her. having a weigh in so we did not breed with her to early as she was so small :0) but she has short hair so my pig tails for her! tehehee
Ok so why the accident?
well I came across the image the other day and as I said I have coloured it a while back,
I put it on my desk and came across the pink core colour card I had put to one side
I do not really use pink was making a different card with pink
and put the card on the desk and then found a challenge that was asking for green on my travels through the draw I found a pink flower and then the green one so put them on the desk and carried on rumaging as one does and when I turned back to the desk all the things were together and well! just seemed to go together! so a total accident!
but well I think they worked so had a play and this is what I came up with....
Think my Mum will love this one as she loves Lulu
te ehheeee!
found a few challenges too!
Secret Crafter - Stitching
Totally Gorjuss - Its for you mum
Pink elephant - Green in the combo ( see its their fault, teheheee )
Simon say's stamp - Mothers day / girly
Fab and Funky - Its all in the shape
