This weeks LGS challenge on Craftbubble.

I found a great challenge on LGS at Craftbubble.  There is a design to follow and I hope I have done it justice.  The backing is some card with butterflies on it.  I stamped a  messy rabbit and went round the edges with a ink pad.  The fence was also part of the messy rabbit stamps but I had to match them up to make the fence long enough.  A tag  with a happy birthday peel off added and some pink ribbon on it were put into a vellum envelope..

Fabs Christmas Challenge Week13

Week 13 of Fabs Christmas Challenge is tone on tone.  So I thought I would try some paper weaving.  Cut out some 10mm strips in 2 shades of green and a 20mm strip for the edge.  I used a glue stick to hold the paper in place while I weaved it.  A grey ribbon down the edge of the card. Then I added a sentiment onto a die cut shape and a peel off in the top corner.
