APRIL SHOWERS - NO! ITS A DOWNPOUR



Hello Everyone..

Sunday..nearly lunchtime and back off to work shortly to do the lunches so popping this card up on schedule as I'm hoping to be out for tea..[I did saying hoping]..

Really cold today with a freezing southerly wind and rain so a good place to be is in my craft space this afternoon.

The Sunshine girls were allowed to choose any image we wanted for this challenge and I picked this little sweetie Emily's Lil Bunnies 




She is a pretty little thing...






Love this colour combo of yellow and green with a touch of turquoise..

The image was  coloured with Faber Castell pencils...and made some flowers with a Marianne creatable flower die and used the Marine foam backed suede again..cut pretty well...just needed a tweak here and there..and gave the flowers some gingham flat dots in the centres.




I made some wired pearl details..for leaves really...a suede bow up the top and managed to use a doily...never look right when I do it..but I like this one.

This card has gone to a friends 'Mum' for her Birthday...so hope she likes it.

So there we go...and if you care to pop over to HERE you will some amazing creations from my teamies..

Thanks ever so much for stopping by...hope your weekend is going brilliantly.

I don't know where I should start with the praise, but I love SO much your pearl wire leaves, the gingham centers, that suede bow and the colors are gorgeous together. The tiny mum popped in there is perfect. The image is precious with the one little bunny butt. :)
Beautiful details as always Chrissy!!!
P.s. I understand the downpour thing..I hope all are okay and not floating away!!
