ok, so, i've mentioned before that tiny kawaii stickers are like catnip to me, i can rarely walk past a display without buying some. but... i make big, grungy cards! so they tend to accumulate and become a sort of tiny sticker museum instead of a supply source. thus i've been making an effort to dip into them more.
something else i can never resist is patterned paper with clouds on, but i'm not even going to pretend to be sorry about that one, because cloud paper is (imo) endlessly useful; it basically allows you to make an instant landscape! in this case i've got fairly big, fairly new, clouds from photoplay paired with pretty old, medium sized, hearts from echo park (i think!). my ancient heart and cloud punches still get used constantly; almost always on scraps, as they are here.
i used the current (awesome!) sketch saturday to guide my placement of elements:
finally, i have a little bit of a public service announcement to make, based on the fact that i found this combination of pre-cut-out elements which i swear was EXACTLY like this, when i was sorting through leftovers, looking for something else entirely. so if, like me, you store extra diecuts jumbled up in envelopes, you might consider separating predators and prey, or things like this are bound to happen!!!
