Just 'poodling around'

On Tuesday, with a little bit of free time, I just 'poodled around' and came up with this card:

The backing papers were sent to me by Dee (aka Peggy when she comments) - a lovely pack of 'Parisian themed' papers - thank you again Dee!! I covered the card with one paper and then cut round circles in a diamond shape on one of the other papers. The image is called 'Petit' and is from Kirsty Wiseman's range of Bug Girls stamps - so very oh, la, la and French chic isn't she! Coloured with Pro Markers and then cut round to layer onto the card. The card candi was coloured using Pro Markers, the red, white and blue ribbon came from my stash (QVC I think). The poodle charm came from a super idea from Dee - Primark sell necklaces and bracelets with French themed charms on right now - poodles and Eiffel Towers to mention just a couple. I bought a necklace (or two) in Nottingham the other weekend and the poodle came from one of those. No bracelets to be had, I think crafters have cottoned on.......and the chain was from my stash.

So Sandra, now you know what I meant when I emailed about poodling around!
