Good Morning Everyone,
Today is a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu This weeks challenge is being hosted by the lovely Asha
her challenge is Summer Sunshine.
Perfect for this time of the year, just a shame the sun seems to have forgotten to shine again!
Anyway this weeks card is a 8x8 card - Top tip here, I make my own card blanks, now you need to make it slightly less then 8x8 otherwise it doesn't fit in an 8x8 envelope.. Mmm wonder how I found that one out (oops) The card is matted onto pearl pink card and the a further mat of white card and backing papers. The image is cut using the labels 23 collection from Nestabilities. I used the smallest one in my set as I have the grand set.
The image is from the lovely Joanna Sheen range "Messy Rabbit" now I am positive this range has been discontinued, which is a shame as he was really popular, but I guess times change.
To finish the card I added Ribbon, Bow, Heart Pearls, Corner Die from Joy Dies, six "sunflowers" that have brown card candi placed in the middle. I finished it with the sentiment of "happy anniversary"
The bunny is coloured in using promarkers.
I love the colours and the flowers, especially the sunflowers, reminds me of growing them at home with my dad in the summer in our back garden.. Really should have a go at growing them now.
