Slugs, snails and puppy dog tails......

Do you remember the nursery rhyme about what little girls and boys are made of? Well it was the boys that were made of slugs and snails and puppy dog tails but, for some reason, this Whimsy Stamp image reminded me of the rhyme and I just had to have it. Isn't this the cutest little snail you have ever seen?

For this card I have gone large on an 8 x 8 base and used some of the lovely paper from the Bearly Mine Spring Flight set, which I thought complimented the image perfectly. I have also used a blue paper from the Pain and Simple paper set, to cover the whole of the base card.

As you can see, there is a little bit of distressing going on here too :o)
Finally - a close up of the image where you can hopefully see that I have gone for decoupaging and a little splash of glitter.

I would love to enter the following challenges with this card......
