Make It Monday sponsored by Platypus Creek Stamping & Craft

It's Make It Monday - yay!!!  And this week we are being sponsored by Platypus Creek Stamping and Crafts and I created a card with their Daisy that I coloured with my Copics on watercolour paper to get a more rustic feel and matched the image up with papers from the BasicGrey Origins paper pack (from Quixotic Paperie here)...

 
 



You can never have enough thank you cards, right?!  I thought the flower would look really pretty framing a sentiment - I'm really pleased how it turned out!

The lucky winner from this week will win a [AUS]$20 gift voucher to either Platypus Creek Stamps or Platypus Digitals - shame I can't enter!!



And for my favourite this week, I have chosen this uber uber sweet card by Larissa.... 


Card created by Larissa
