A Bird Bath in the Garden

Since we've been having 80 degree weather in March here in Massachusetts - it seems perfectly normal to make a card with a summertime birdbath in it!!

This pretty little birdbath is a digi image called Birdie Bathtime from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  I cut the image with a rectangle Nestability sponging the edges with Ranger Distress Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters before removing the image from the die.  Then I colored the image with Copics.  The pretty papers are Amy Butler by K& Co and the wave border is a die from MFT.  My sentiment is a rub on by Stampin' Up.

This card was made for the following challenges:

Raise the Bar RTB97  In the Garden - to use an image of something you would see in a garden.
SCS Ways to Use It Challenge - to use Rub Ons
SCS Queen for the Day - Korin was this weeks queen and I cased this card of hers.
SCS Free 4 All challenge - to use 3 or more of something -  I used 8 rhinestones!
