Crafts Galore Encore May Challenge

We have officially arrived at my favourite month of the year! I might be a bit biased as my birthday is in May, but it's also the most amazing month as spring is about to turn to summer and everything in the garden is so beautiful. At the same time I can't believe a third of 2015 has already flown by, although I'm still convinced we were robbed of a month or two somewhere in the midst of it all as I have no recollection of February and most of March. A new month means it's time for a new challenge over at Crafts Galore Encore. For the duration of May we are challenging you use a stamp or digi image on your fabulous crafting projects and linking up with us. 

Our wonderful sponsor is Oak Pond Creations and they are giving away three digi images for our challenge winner. There are so many wonderful images to choose from! I had the pleasure of using Boris the Party Pig for my card. I think he looks like such a happy little chap! But then again, who wouldn't be happy if they had a bucketful of ice cream. You can see more of the lovely Oak Pond Creations images and get inspiration from the CGE Design Team

For my card I coloured Boris using Copics and die cut him using Lawn Fawn Stitched rectangle dies. I used the lovely Lawn Fawn Scripty Sayings stamp for the sentiments. I matted the image onto some birthday themed paper and used the Stampin' Up Bow builder punch to create the bow.
