Garden Friend

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “Banners”. The team created beautiful cards to inspire you – a DD_Bannersvisit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile.

I love all the colours in the inspiration photo and therefor decided to use a colourful striped designer paper as background. I stamped a cute little bunny on a white tag and did the colouring with watercolour pencils. The tag was then layered with mirror tape for dimension on the striped background. I added a die cut banner in matching colours and embellished it with wax cord bows and little flower blossoms. I finish off with tiny die cut hearts and a sentiment.

Challenges I entered:

    Adorable card. Great use of the banners, adding to the card, not distracting from the main image. So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas for our April challenge of “It’s all about Animals”.
