A brighter day

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Hip to be SQUARE (square cards).We have the fabulous Pattie’s Creations  as our sponsor.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used Pumpkin Watering Can & Mums from Pattie’s Creations.Such a beautiful image and perfect for this time of year.The colouring is done with Copic Ciao Markers.I wanted to give this a torn straight from the sketchbook feel so I used my Spellbinders die.I inked the edges while the image was still in the die.I did the same with the sentiment.This was part of a magazine freebie stamp set.Originally it did have a sun to the right of the word You but I masked that off so it would fit in the die cut better.The papers are also a freebie.The ribbon was from my DS2’s Birthday cake from last week 🙂 I’m sure he doesn’t mind me stealing borrowing it 😉 He loves his Mummy 😀   I dug out a Prima flower and leaves from my stash along with the wooden flower button which I stained with Distress Ink before threading.
