Sketch Saturday #306 Put on your Easter Bonnet!

It's Saturday and time for another sketch at
Sketch Saturday
This week Deb is the designer of our great sketch 
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
the wonderful

I used this fabulous image called "Bird Bonnet" which you can find here and paper-pieced the girl's dress and what I like to think of as her Easter bonnet with Crate Paper "DIYShop". I merged the ADFD image with a photograph I took of my own back garden so it looks like the little girl is sitting on the fence overlooking my Teahouse.  My borders are two EK Success punches.  I am still waiting for my Easter sentiments to arrive but this can be added later.

And here is Deb's fabulous design layout
Isn't it a fun sketch?  Now all you have to do is scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us.  And don't forget to share some love with my teamies!  I know they would be pleased to see you.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
A Day for Daisies - All about Easter (I think this little girl is wearing an Easter bonnet)
A Creative Romance - Eggcellent Spring
My Mum's Craft Shop - Anything Goes
The ABC Challenge Just as You Like; and
