I believe in magic beans

Morning all!

Short and sweet one today as I have lots of crating to ado! Australia Day public holiday here (Yeah Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi! ) so I thought I would share with you what I got up to last night seeing as I didn't have to go to bed a reasonable hour teehehe.  I think this is perfect for a little boy card and I would even be tempted to give it to an adult male.  The image has been colored as per usual with the Derwent water color pencils.  I love the cute little bean embellishments!

Card Ingredients
Card Stock: Brazil Black & White
Patterned Papers: Kaisercraft After 5 Collection-Top Hat & Corsage
Embellishments: Kaisercraft paper blooms (blue), kindy glitz - clear, leaves & jewels from stash & beans from the back garden shed.
Image: Mo's Digital Pencil - Jack and the bean stalk
Sentiment: Sassy Studio Designs : Once upon a time - fairytale sentiments

Fair winds and following seas,
The Navy Wife
