‘Bearly’ time to do the garden!

wscdt10thjan 001

It’s the lovely Dawn’s turn to host at Willow Sketchie Challenge this week and here’s her fabby sketch :

The theme is In the Garden.Don’t forget you can follow the sketch and/or theme.You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!As well as a winner (chosen randomly) there will be a hand picked Top 3 and they will receive a super cute badge for their blog.Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used Taking a snoooooze digital stamp by Willow DesignsWho wouldn’t rather catch 40 winks than mow the lawn etc. – me for one 😉 I’ve trimmed it down using a nestie and the Out-of the-Box technique to allow his newspaper to dangle over the edge.He’s been coloured with ProMarkers and 3D Crystal Lacquer has added shine to the lenses on his specs.I was very naughty and picked up this New Leaf  pad at my local craft warehouse.One thing I wasn’t buying this year was MORE papers to add to the copious amount I already own…but…when they’re half price you have to to don’t you?Don’t you?!And of course I had to pick up a Boho Chic one as well 🙂 Not one to pass up on a bargain,especially a crafty one!I added an embossed piece of cardstock to break up the patterns and wrapped it with some natural raffia.Altho’ this is meant to be a Christmas design folder I think it works well with garden/nature themed cards all year round.The sign is die cut and stamped with a sentiment,the brads are purely for decoration.The snap is from a set I bought in a craft sale last Summer,well 2 actually as they were a good price, and it’s the first time I’ve used one!They do go beautifully with these papers tho’ so I’m sure they will get out and about more 😉
