Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 40 - Bunting and Banners

Good morning,

Before I show you today's card, you might like to your sunglasses because this one is bright!!  I am determined to make summer finally arrive despite the cold and rain!!

OK, sunnies on??  If not don't say I didn't warn you!!

OK, this weeks Scrapbook Sisters Challenge is

I'm going to be honest, this was NOT my original card for this challenge, which was far more clean and simple than this one!!  But I just couldn't get it to work, so I'll keep fiddling until I am happy - if not it'll go in the recycling bin :-)

I used a Paper Shelter image, and went a bit tropical with the inking round the edge :-)  Check out her shiny sunglasses and glass - don't ya just love glossy accents!!

I hand cut the bunting, and stamped it with a sentiment and then stitched it onto some ribbon, not as easy as I thought it would be!!

The papers are assorted Bo Bunny and Echo Park (I think!), and an X cut die cut, some more stitching, dotty organza and flowers finished this little cutie off.

After I abandoned project one after faffing and paper shuffling for hours this one came together quite quickly.  How irritating!!  If I'd just done her to start with instead of trying to be smart, I'd have had more time to carry on crafting, and got less stressed!!   Lesson learnt :-)

Thanks for stopping by!!  Looking forward to seeing your cards

I'd like to enter these challenges please

More tomorrow xx
