Crafty Calendar Challenge - The Great Outdoors!

Yippee!! It is the first Friday of the month and that means it is time for another challenge at Crafty Calendar Challenge! This month we would like to see creations depicting the "great outdoors". This can be through colours, images, whatever makes you think of the great outdoors. The great outdoors makes me think of the colour green so I just had to use green papers. These Bo Bunny papers are a little bright but I quite like the finished effect!
This challenge was the perfect excuse to ink up a little hAnglar I have - isn't she cute riding her bike? - perfect for the outdoor theme too! I've coloured her with copics.
I have used a MS butterfly punch around the page punch on one of the image mats - LOVE this punch!! The small butterfly on it's own is from the corner punch, I just cut the bottom of it following the shape of the wings. The gems are from my stash.
I added lots of fresh looking white flowers to complete the outdoor feel. The roses and gladioli spray are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the other flowers are from my stash. I punched the leaves with a Woodware punch. The large butterfly nestled amongst the flowers was punched with MS Monarch Butterfly punch.

Hope you can join in this month - can't wait to see your outdoor creations! Thanks for looking! x
