Prayer Garden

Hello Friends! Mindy with you, featuring my thoughts on our inspiration photo presented for our weekly challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such.  Our Photo inspiration is a cute bunny munching on some greenery in the vintage garden.

When I studied this photo, I was inspired by the plants and the bunny's form, against the brick wall. I started my card with the Bricks and Bark Embossing Folder by Spellbinders against my card base.  I then die cut Garden Pots by Memory Box, Bunny Set and Grass Border by Impression Obsession,
a Leaf Branch by Sue Wilson, and two Small Hydrangea Blooms by Poppy Stamps.

I die cut the Bunny Set, and used it as a stencil to stipple the bunny shapes on to white card stock with green ink.  I was going for the topiary look, growing from the clay pots. I then hid the clay pots behind two layers of the Grass Border, also shaded with the green ink.  I used Joy! Foam Pads- Large to pop the topiary up against the brick wall to give the card dimension. I then added the Sue Wilson leaves and a Grommet Tag from Spellbinders to the top of my card, with a sentiment from the Keep in Touch, Too stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  Two small hydrangea blooms were die cut and added to the side of the grommet tag.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today, and are inspired by our photo to create a card of your own for our weekly challenge.
