A Goose that lays Golden Eggs!

Hello! Gina has challenged us to make a card or project using a favorite children' s book. This the card I was inspired to make. I got the idea for making the sun rays from a card Theresa Momber did and you can find it here.

Jack in the Beanstalk was a favorite book of mine when I was little and my girls enjoyed it as well.
I always loved the part of the story where Jack finds the goose that lays golden eggs which is the part that inspired me to make this card. Another part of the story I liked was the giant saying this.
I smell the blood of an Englishman?
Be he 'live, or be he dead,
I'll grind his bones to make my bread.
Kinda gruesome, huh?

The supplies for my card:
Stamps: Gina K. Designs "Spring Mix" by Gina.
DP is Basicgrey
Ink: memento black and canaloupe
Ribbon and nestabilities
Card stock is from Gina K. Designs

The winner of this challenge will get to be a DT member for the month of April!! You can find all the info on this the illustrator challenge .

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
