Toile Bunny

I'm scheduling this post so that you don't miss me too much while I am away! LOL!
this is a card that I made for the sketch challenge on SCS, SC198. This was really a challenge for me! I do not have any nesties, haven't given in to that yet, although I do pine to own them. I don't have a circle cutter that cuts in all different sizes, just my jumbo and mega circle punches. So when I saw the measurements that were required for this card I didn't think that I was going to be able to play in the challenge. So my measurements may be off a little bit, and things are just not perfect, but I tried.
I had this pad that one of my CCD students gave me and it is in the shape of 1/2 a circle. So I traced that onto the card stock and used my good old paper snips and cut out the shape the only fashioned way! No nesties, so no border, just good old direct to paper and sponging!
I added some su ribbon and got out my pretties kit, I tried to dye a flower but that didn't work, I didn't like the outcome so I added some primas and a stick pin decorated with all the little pretties that come in the kit!
Thanks for looking and I really hope that you are enjoying your day!
I am either lounging by the pool, sipping a cocktail, on a beach, sipping a cocktail or stamping somewhere, sipping a cocktail!
