Summer birthday at PolkaDoodles

Hellooooo, Friday at last and even better I'm working from home this morning :-) I am working honest, hopefully Mr Blogger will post this for me while I've got my nose to the grindstone lol. My card today is for our new challenge at Polkadoodles where the theme is Summer Birthday.

I've used an image and backing papers from Cherryblossom Lane cd from Polkadoodles (of course), now i'm not usually a big fan of animal stamps but I just luuuuurve the bunnies on this cd so I expect you'll be seeing a few more before long lol. The image is coloured with Graph'It and Flexmarkers, inked with distress ink . I've added a punched border, some faux stitching, some scalloped lace and a satin bow topped with a pink rose, The sentiment is also from the same cd, these ticket sentiments are fab! Here's another pic of the image:

To finish off I've popped some little faux pearls in the corners

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
Digi Makeover: punches/dies
Divas by Design: distressing
fab'n'Funky: animals
In the pink: Pink flowers
Pollycraft: anything goes

I don't know about summer birthdays, it looks more like November outside today, its so dull and we've had torrential rain (again!!) and its forecast to rain all weekend, what that all about? Not good but i suppose its perfect crafting weather as I won't feel bad about leaving the weeds again lol.
 Have a good day and thanks for popping by
