Sweet Stampin DT Card - In The Garden

2nd Post of the Day


Awwww :) Aint she cute?

So, this week our theme on Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog is 'In The Garden', and we were given some super-cute Heather Ellis images to play with as our weekly sponsor.  I think I smiled the whole time I coloured this in :)  Our May monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen so there really is some fabby prizes as well as some gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the DT over on the blog.

This card was quite quick and simple.  I hand-stitched the DP, used my favourite new spellbinder die to frame the image, and the sentiment is from an LOTV stamp set.

I will be entering this card in the below competitions:

One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Cupcake Craft - In the Garden
Papertake Weekly - Bloom and Grow
The Stampman - Recipe - Stitches, ribbon, dies
2 Sisters - Use a digi

Thanks so much for looking at my blog today, have a great weekend,
