Critters in the garden

Hi, I've been playing with some new stamps this afternoon. I bought them with a gift certificate which I won, for Simon says stamp. 
 The stamps are Penny Black and called Critter Party. I've used 2 of them and coloured them with promarkers. I've glazed the ballon with Pinflair glaze. I've kept this card clean and simple just adding a few pearls and a flower with stickle accents. The backing paper came from the scraps I bought at a charity auction a few years ago.

 Considering this is the first time I've coloured these characters I'm really pleased with how they turned out. Hope you like them too.

I would like to enter this in the following:-
Simon says stamp - clean and simple 
Cute card Thursday - touch of sparkle 
Forever Friends - use 2 images
I love promarkers - anything goes
LEJ designs - lots of layers
The Paper Shelter - birthday cards with a sentiment
Penny Black - In the garden

Thank you for visiting. I hope you'll come back soon.

Happy crafting
Helen xx
