So many Challenges to choose from...

Good morning from a wet and rainy Cape Town.  We have had such a mild winter in terms of rainfall, that it is really a blessing to have some this morning.  Halleluyah! 

I managed to put this little card together last night (a birthday card for my daughter Kendall who is celebrating her birthday in September)... I've also just found a few challenges that I can enter it into as well.   This is one of my newer stamps, which I am showcasing here for the first time.

I think she's Tilda and her Bunny.  Thought I would try a different colour scheme for a change (note girls.... NO PINK!!!).  This was soooooo difficult for me. I kept reaching for the pink stuff...lol

The gorgeous patterned paper is from my W&M range of papers, purchased from Merrypak.  I LOVE my flat-backed pearls, purchased from Paola [Paola has some amazing goodies, you may want to email her to find out what she's got for you - especially for our local up-country gals who aren't as fortunate as their city sisters to have all the craftshops on hand. ] Ribbon and flowers from my stash.  Sentiment from LOTV.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Anything Goes Challenge - Pick of the Bunch (Flowers)
Deep Ocean Challenge - Ribbons
Stamps R Us ChallengeBirthday celebration (they are celebrating their First one)
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Summer Colours

I think that's enough for now, don't you ?  Thanks for popping by, hope you're having a good crafty week. hugs Sharon x

Beautiful card, Sharon!!! Love the DP and lace ribbon...all my favorite colors. This is one of my favorite Tilda's cause I love bunnies. Hubby feeds them along with the local dove and quail..he has about 3 bunnies that will eat out of his hand and expect food whenever they see him. They're not spoiled (ha, ha). But I love how you put this together, it is so precious. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, Sharon :o)
