Time Began in a Garden

     Hello and welcome to June!  How did we get to almost half way through this year?  Time is flying by.  Goodness, this month all the kids will be out of school, summer will officially begin (winter in the Southern Hemisphere), the days will begin getting shorter (longer down under), and before you know it, we'll all be scrambling to do our holiday cards.  :-D

     But for this morning, this is the first of three posts I have for 1st of the Month DT cards and this one is for the "Anything Goes with a Critter" challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  Our sponsor is Sparkle n Sprinkle and they provided digi images for each of us to use.  I'm using "Garden Silhouette" and I love how easily it lent itself to a CAS design.

     No coloring on this one at all.  Each piece is printed, fussy cut, and layered onto the card front.  I used various thicknesses of dimensional dots or tape, the thickest of which is on the sentiment.  I finished it by adding a black bow for embellishment.

     I do hope we're going to see you playing along this month.  Remember, any project (not just cards) which features a creature of any sort qualifies to be entered in the challenge.  Come join us and give us some fantastic inspiration!   Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

This is a lovely scene that you've created :) At first glance, I thought all the silhouettes were die cuts, until I read your post!! Everything is laid out perfectly here, and makes for a very striking card! Thanks for sharing with us at Creative Fingers this time around!
