Retiform Garden

I made this for my swap buddy Val in our NZ cardswap group where the monthly theme was retiform cards.  There are plenty of examples on how to make them on the internet.  It involves a lot of masking & stamping.

I thought since the weather has been gloomy going into our southern winter, a garden sunshiny card was called for, and a reminder that summer is coming in a few months.   The bunnies at the bottom are to give a little friendship hug while we are still feeling the effects of Covid19.

Images: various stamps
Distress inks
