Hi all

I  printed the sentiment on computer and then cut it out with an ovel nestie..
The swirls are a die from sizzix,The flower is from wild orchid crafts,The birdy punch  and edge punche are  from stampin up,the butterfly stamp is by sheena douglas,the ribbon and gems are of course from meiflower crafts.

  12. Hi Tracey, love your card, very elegant. However, I'm not sure whether it qualifies for the Little Miss Muffet Challenge, since I see nothing printed like from a book or in writing. I just see a sentiment which is not the idea of this challenge. Hugs, Frea, DT member LMM CHallenges
