Gardening Rabbit

I made this card for the birthday of a friend who's a very keen gardener using another of the Helz Cuppleditch stamps I got for £1 in the Hobby Craft sale.
It's a lovely big stamp and great fun to colour, which I've done with my usual Promarkers.  The plant pot, watering can, seed packets and gloves are from the same stamp set, I cut them out and layered them up after colouring.  The sentiment stamp is from a Papermania Lucy Cromwell set, I love the handwritten look to it.  I inked the sentiment panel with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink for a warm, sunny spring feel.
The papers are Dovecraft Riverbank Revels, to which I've added some green cardstock.  The lacy border was made with a Martha Stewart punch and the flower was made with a Spellbinders die from my Jewelled Flower set with a button centre.  To finish off, I added some baker's twine, a yellow bow with a brad in it's centre and some flower buttons.
