Tiny Tiddler

This is my first card this week. I am falling in love with my Sugar Nellies that I won earlier this year - I particularly like this one and was just waiting for the right challenge to come along to use her.I made the flowers myself with my Sizzix Bigz Build A Flower - there are 2 other parts to the flower but I feel they look out of place. I simply curled the petals under with the use of my small craft scissors and that made them look so 'full'.
The image reminds me of summer days when we lived on a farm near a small river - suppose it was really a burn (may need to be Scottish to know that word) - and my Granda used to take us down to look for tadpoles. Need less to say I never managed to get any in my jar!

I am entering this one into 4 challenges - I am getting better at linking to more challenges now-
Moving Along with The Times No 50 following their sketch;
Crafty Catz Embossing Challenge No 36 - all the dark green card is embossed using my Sizzix Lines and Circles folder;
the brand new Bunny Zoe's 'Nice & Girly' Challenge No 1.

Image is stamp Tiny Tiddles from Sugar Nellie coloured with Promarkers (put back in box before I noted colours! oooops!);
Floral and Striped paper was freebie from mag;
Dark green card from stash;
Flowers handmade by moi with added jewel from stash;
and sentiment from stash.
