I used some old papers and new embellishments I picked up this week on my shopping spree. The metal flowers are from Stampin' Up! and were glued on the card. I then went back in with Liquid Pearls and added a white pearl to the center of each flower.
Here's what the Alchemist Chamber looks like before it was cut down for the card. There is a lot going on in ther and some fun details to color. Somehow, a cupcake was made inside that "kitchen." Now you just have to decide if the cupcake contains a secrete potion or not! LOL
I used Annika's cloud technique and colored the top part of the sky to help fill it in and also to bring in some more blue. It's a simple technique and really helps complete the image.
The words are actually from boy themed scrapbook tag that I cut up. I originally cut it up because I thought "adorable" was out of place but ended up using all the words anyway, except for "boy" of course. Two of the strips are popped with dimensional foams.
The metal tag was handmade. I used a thin sheet of metal and cut out a tag using a Cuttlebug die. I then used metal chip art stamps and impressed the crown before attaching it to the card with eyelets.

Did you know? The fossa is a cat-like, carnivorous mammal that is endemic to Madagascar. It is a member of the Eupleridae, a family of carnivorans closely related to the mongoose family. is the largest mammalian carnivore on the island of Madagascar and has been compared to a small cougar. It has semi-retractable claws and flexible ankles that allow it to climb up and down trees head-first, and also support jumping from tree to tree.
