OUAT DT Card for April 2023 based on children's book CORDUROY

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog!

Once Upon A Time challenge blog

When: April 1, 2023 start date 

Why: Theme is children's book as inspiration prompt from Corduroy

My interpretation:

How this was made notes:

1. green and white leafy washi tape = Pen + Gear

2. wood chick shape/ornament = Dollar Tree

3. brown, orange, green ink pads = Memento

4. button, red cardstock, black roller detail fine tip pen= stash items
