In The Garden

Good morning, it's Thursday and that means it's Willow Sketchie Challenge time again.  This week the team have been using the image 'Taking A Snooze' and following Sharon's Sketch.

Sharon decided to add some extras in addition to her sketch, she would like to see lots of layers and also something blue, something dimensional and something patterned.. You don’t need a Willow Designs image to take part but it would be good if you did.

This is the card that I made.

'Taking A Snooze' is a lovely image to work with, you can find it in the Willow Designs Shop, it comes as a black outlined image.  I printed the image twice and coloured it with ProMarkers also available in the shop.  I cut one image out and decoupaged  it onto the other image which I had cut out with a Spellbinders circle die.  I layered this onto a scalloped circle and another plain circle.

I rotated the sketch and made corrugated corners, added some buttons from my stash and a ribbon.  To finish I stamped a sentiment and layered this onto a small scalloped circle.

I decorated the inside of my card to complement the front.

Image:  Willow Designs - Taking A Snooze
Papers:  Bearly Mine Designs Designer Extreme CD 
Tools:  Spellbinders - Scalloped Circles, Standard Circles
Embellishments:  corrugated card, buttons, ribbon and raffia from stash
