So many Weeds...

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Happy Sunday to you all, what are you doing today?
Off to see my granddaughters today.

I had a wonderful time yesterday at the NEC, met a few of my crafting buddies and got lots of lovely goodies too.

How many of you like gardening? I am not a lover of gardening per se as when I go out and help hubby in the garden I always end up being hurt so that is his domain! LOL!

A gardening card to share with you today.


Step by Step

1. 8 x 8 white square scalloped card.
2. First layer is dark green card.
3. The topper has been created by painting Aquatints in 3 different colours the stamping the shed and the wheelbarrow, Memento ink then colouring them in with DI ground espresso and DI pens.
4. I then stencilled the foilage around the images with DI then matted and layered onto the green card.
5. To finish off I stamped the sentiment, added the butterfly and pearl gems around the 4 corners.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafting with Friends - Always Anything Goes
Creative Fingers #98 - Always Anything Goes
Simply Papercrafts #17 - Always Anything Goes
