Papertake Weekly ,,,, In the Garden :-)

Good morning :-) I hope all is well with you all and you’re looking forward to a new theme on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-)

This week we are all getting ready to enjoy the summer and clear away the weeds, get the bedding plants in ,,,,rabbits ,,,, :-)


For my card I followed the fab layout on the Sweet Sketch Challenge and used this lovely Garden Bunnies image from the Wild Rose Studio. I coloured with copics and added star dust stickles here and there :-) The papers are Vintage Rose, also from the WRS and I inked the edges with various distress inks, Stormy Sky, Broken China and Victorian Velvet. I used a lovely Marianne Designs border die and threaded some pink vintage tape from The Ribbon Girl through the holes and added a bow, flower and Heart Swirl die cut. The flower arrangement is a mix of Prima, WOC and flowers sent from my buddy Kate, thanks Kate xx :-) I finished with a Martha Stewart punched butterfly, coloured with my copic air brush and a few gems added to the body.

We are sponsored by the lovely Jodie at Bugaboo Stamps so a fab choice of 7 digi images on offer for one lucky entrant :-)

Thanks for looking :-) our lovely GD’s Hazel, Jane and the DT have made some gorgeous cards so hop on over to the PTW to see them :-)

mixamatoasties said...

So pretty. Was she meaning to grow the bunny though or has he been naughty and eaten the flowers?!
