Birthday Card - BoBunny Secret Garden / Take It Make it Challenge June

Hello Everyone

I can't believe that a week has passed and I have not posted anything on my blog! bad!!!! I have no idea where the time went!

I am posting from a freezing and icy Johannesburg...I think the max temp today was like 9 or 10C.
That is very cold for us Africaners that love the warm temps and sun!!!
Anyways, we had some good rain too, but it certainly has made it verrrrrry cold! ;-)

I have a Birthday card to share with you today.
I used the gorgeous Secret Garden Collection from BoBunny.

I used a BoBunny Stickable stencil - Party Time and a Versamark clear pigment stamp and white embossing powder to create the bottom part of the stamp.  I then went and did some watercolour effects over the embossing, using blue, purple and pink spray inks.

I used BoBunny Floral stamp to stamp the flowers and the leaves on some of the pretty patterned papers and then fussy cut the elements.  I also fussy cut some of the swirls from the patterned papers.
Lastly, I stamped the Birthday sentiment with a Penny Black stamp.

I am also entering this card for the Take it Make it challenge, over at the Craft Stamper.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you had a great weekend and a great Monday!
