gum trees and flowers

when i moved to sydney the first thing that struck me was how many gum trees there were loads and loads of different varieties and colours and textures. it was one of the things that reminded me that i had indeed moved countries and i no longer saw sparrows and black birds in the trees but cockatoos and lorikeets!!! this month i am doing a card swap with the ladies from essential baby. this month we had to use a scallop circle, have a wild animal and use green.
i am not sure the ladybug quite cuts the mustard on the whole wild animal thing but she is soooo darn cute sitting on the leaf that i just couldn't not put her in the flower was inspired by valita's take on fushias which i have converted to a gum flower
the scallop circle is embossed using the big shot. the leaves are from the leaves die cut for the big shot too. inks are earth elements cheers ears
