In the garden


Well there's a lot going on in this 8 x 8 card isn't there. As soon as I saw the challenge of Summer Scene at Elisabeth Bell's World I knew I had to use one of my fave images. She was one of the first stamps I ever bought from Sugar Nellies and I absolutely love her. She has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The papers are Henbury Lane with a piece of Raspberry Road. I have used the colour challenge of pink and green at Wild Orchid and pink plus one at Charisma . I've used that new MS bird on a wire border punch and a TH butterfly on the edge die. I have so many embossing folders and forget to use them so I thought I would try one on the butterflies and am really pleased with the effect. The flowers of course are Wild Orchid with MS punched leaves.
