Summertime - Especially For You

Hello, bloggers today is a Summertime card to make up for all the rain we had yesterday.

This card began as an A6 white hammered card blank.  From some gorgeous rainbow striped paper I cut a mat slightly smaller than the card blank and adhered them together.  Next onto some white card stock I stamped the rabbit from a Country Companions stamp set that came free with a magazine, using vintage photo distress ink.  Next I coloured the image using ProMarkers and then cut it out and inked the edges to hide the whiteness of the cardstock.  Using some pearl effect bows, I coloured them with ProMarkers and attached them to some green bakers twine.  Using Spellbinders 'pinwheel' dies set I cut a pinwheel from red card stock to make a kite.  This was folded and held together with a red glittered brad.  The bakers twine was then attached to the kite and the other end to the rabbit.  The sentiment is one that I had made on an earlier date and not used it was dies cut using Spellbinders 'ribbon banners large'.  Finally 3 gems were adhered to the top right hand corner of the card and the sentiment was adhered to the bottom left corner.

This card is being entered into the following challenges:-
