March Sketch Challenge at Handmade by Suzanne

Hi there everyone! I hope you are all having a relaxing Sunday afternoon with your family or friends.  It's a little on the hot side in Perth today, but I'm not complaining, as at least it is not humid. :)
I just want to share the new sketch for March at Handmade by Suzanne with you today.  Our sketch designer, Michelle Fowler, has once again done a fantastic job!! Here is the sketch:
And here is my take on it. I've used the new Bo Bunny 'Alora' collection for this.  Bright colours aren't normally my thing, but I'm almost happy with the way this turned out. Lol!  The pic is of my DD and a friend when the friendship was still very new back in January 2008.  Both of them have grown up so much since. :)
 A little close up of my flower cluster.  I've done a lot of fussy cutting here.  Don't you just love those little wooden toadstools from Kaisercraft?!!
I've cut two of the birdhouses from my pattern paper and layered it with foam tape.  I've created the punched edge using one of my Martha Stewart Punch around the Page sets.
 I seem to be using a lot of banners on my pages lately. :)
I hope you feel inspired to give the sketch a go!  There is a $30 store voucher with free postage up for grabs and the winner gets determined by random draw.  Al you have to do is enter!  Just upload you take on the sketch into the GALLERY before the end of March.

This is so sweet, love the red background page ... or is that just a punched border tucked in behind the white cardstock? The little flowers and clusters dotted around are so sweet! And the mushrooms add just that little bit more to finish it! Love it Marelize x
