Brilliant inspiration for you and s
o here is my ½ way creations

I am not sure what it is about Kraft card stock but I really love how it looks with blue

I used the same Bo Bunny papers as my first card for this challenge and the image I have used this time is a Wags and Whiskers stamp, the Bo Bunny paper is double sided so I have used some of each side and also some Kraft too for the paper piecing
the added some liquid pearls and the distressed the cloud background over.
The rest of the image is coloured with distress inks.
I have cut the border with a EK success boarder punch and then overlapped some ribbon, a few chocolate brown pearls and some faux stitching.
