Two Peas in a Pod

     I collect stamps with peas and pea pods because of my baby sister.  She loves getting special pea pod mail.  When House Mouse showcased a pea pod stamp at the beginning of the as on of their Mouse of the Month promotions, I could hardly stand the wait till it came out.
      Here is the card I made for my little sis.  I also have a little pea pod garden stake that I am going to include with it.
     I use 3 separately colored images to create the central image.  The different peas are popped at different levels as are the mouse the pea pod front and back and the peas in the middle and the stem.  Their is lots of depth to this card.  I had to add lots of layers as my sister counts those.  She really appreciates all my cards and is fun to create for.  The heart embellishment in the bow was created using an orange button that matched the buttons in the corners with a heart shaped rhinestone attached to the top.  The little corner buttons have been threaded with ribbon instead of thread for a fun feminine look.  The inside of the card is decorated with the same papers as the outside.

     I also plan to make her a little set of note cards with this image.  So watch for those in an upcoming post.
