Peter Rabbit

This card is for my father in law's birthday from his wife. He enjoys a bit of gardening and nature so thought he would like this little peter rabbit image which I got off my lovely friend Jane. I opened up the crafters companion Peter Rabbit CD through MY CRAFT STUDIO and pulled out the bits and pieces I wanted to use - border, frame, background papers and resized to suit my project. (This was my first time trying this so wasn't sure if it would work...it did) I even pulled the alphabet out to spell his name and resized to suit! Very please with myself and will definitely do this again.

Papers - checks from Peter Rabbit CD
Medium - pencils and sansodor and glitter
