Gruffies and Guest Challenge Blog - April 2016 - Anything goes or the option of "a tag or a project with a tag on it"

Today it is time for me to show you another card for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.

As mentioned before there will be no sponsors for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog in 2016.  Instead members of the Design Team will be offering prizes.

This month it is the turn of Vicky to sponsor the challenge.  She is offering the winner a handmade mini book.  Now who wouldn't want to win that?
I have decided to "splash out" - well I couldn't resist saying that - and use some of my Joanna Sheen Happy Hoppers decoupage sheets and picked this gorgeous rabbit sheltering under his umbrella with a frog.  Isn't it so cute?

The backing papers I have used are from my stash.

I have finished the card off with a tag, twine, card candi, stamped sentiment, ribbon and some handmade flowers.
