Take time to smell the flowers

This little pony from Wink*Wink*Ink is one of my favourite images - she is so sweet and yet the emphasis on her backside just adds a touch of sassiness that I quite enjoy. I decided to use her, along with a couple of brand-new border punches, for a "just because" card.

The patterned paper is from Basic Grey ("euphoria" collection). The inside border uses Martha Stewart's "Pansy" punch. I made the picket fence strips using another Martha punch with Core-dinations "Whitewash" paper. I have to admit that I could easily get obsessed with collecting all of the Martha punches so if you have any gathering dust, just send them over to me! LOL.

Recipe:
  • Basic Grey, patterned paper
  • Core-dinations whitewash paper
  • Flowers & gems (stash)
  • Image - Wink*wink*ink
  • Copic markers
