Patterns in plants and animals
I have noticed a trend of including unusual patterns in nature in crafting.
This lovely topper - free with a craft mag - has the birds and flowers, with unusual backing included.
So I stayed with this theme and used patterned card and paper for the backing and with the cutting dies used for the embellishments.
Really liked the affect, and of course a great way to use up scrap patterned card and paper.
I used Cheery Lynn Designs Dies - Fanciful Flourish,
cArt Us Nesting Dies - Butterflies, and a flower die I just can't remember the name of.
