I think this card could be used for many occasions, like Thinking of You, Wish You Were Here, Happy Birthday and others. I haven't decided yet, so it'll go into my stash :)
Things that might not be obvious are: -
I used a white gel pen to go over the lattice on the chair which might not be apparent in the picture but it looks great IRL.
I paper-pieced not only the chair seat, but also the rim around the chair and the two front legs.
After I punched the lattice edging (looked like a little garden fence to me) I used my Scor-Pal to emboss a line on the fence. It gave it a little texture and interest. I then popped it up on some foam dimensionals so I could put the flowers and greenery behind it. I added the rabbit with foam dimensionals.
When I sit out in my yard, I enjoy watching the rabbits, birds and "some" bugs, i.e. butterflies, dragonflies, and ladybugs - so peaceful :)
Thanks for looking and I hope it inspires you to stamp today.

Oh, this is SO PRETTY Cindy. I'm glad you gave the details because I can't quite see it all in the photo, but imagine it's even more spectacular in real life. Wow, the paper piercing is amazing! Beautiful job and I love the border raised up like a fence with flowers behind. Very clever!! TFS!

Great card. I too love to just sit and watch the wildlife. Birds to me are one of life's many great treasures. They are fun to watch and even more wonderful to hear. Love your fence with the flowers behind it. And the bunny completes the serene scene. TFS. : )
