Sew Many Challenges - Spring Sketch Challenge!

This week's Sew Many Cards Challenge is a dual one - make a spring project using the sketch given over on the challenge blog.  I chose sweet little Jovi as my image to work with as she is just the cutest little bunny I've ever seen!  You can find her here.  I used some SU Bermuda Bay and PTI Berry Sorbet for my cardstock.  The patterned paper is from the Twitterpated line by Imaginisce.  I colored my image with the copics you will see below.  I used my nestabilities to cut my image out, however, I had already handcut a portion of her beautiful long ears so that they could hang over the edge and not be cut as part of the oval.  To do this just handcut the portion you want to hang over and then tuck it behing the cutting side of your nestie so it doesn't get cut when you run it through your machine.  Those flowers I made with the PTI cardstock using Christina's tutorial which you can find here.  These are super easy and super fun!  I used my computer to make my sentiment and added some ribbon and some leaves I cut with my sizzix die and there you go. 

We are so excited to have Richard & Liz Pomeroy from Cornish Heritage Farms as our sponsor this week!  They have generously donated three new release stamp sets that will be awarded to the challenge winners this week!  Here is a little bit about Richard & Liz and their wonderful company.

Cornish Heritage Farms (CHF) is owned and run by Richard & Liz Pomeroy.  Why the name?  Richard & Liz are orginally from Cornwall, England hence the Cornish Heritage & the 'Farms' is the 100 acre farm in north central Montana where they live & where all the stamps are manufactured.  Richard & Liz believe in producing a high quality product so all the stamps are deeply etched, red rubber.  CHF is a diverse stamp company in the fact that it consists of a variety of different licenses & styles, ranging from very detailed (Thomas Kincaide) to simple line art (Tom Fun Collection) therefore offering something for everyone.

Be sure to check back with me as I had the pleasure of working with one of their beautiful stamps!  I can't wait to show you!

I'm entering this one in The Pink Elephant Challenge for this week which is to make a spring project.  I'm also entering it in The Secret Crafter's challenge this week which is anything goes.  This will also be my entry for The Little Red Wagon challenge which is to use copics.
