The Friendly Garden

I have had a lovely afternoon making this card for Brenda's 'In an English Garden' challenge over at Allsorts and the Just Magnolia 'Friendship' challenge (my first time of entering!).

I enjoyed colouring this Tilda (donated stamped image by Susie Sugar, thanks!) with my PMs. I matted her on to a Funky Fairy Matt which was stamped with a Messy Rabbit fence and a Smirk butterfly. The white card was stamped using a Studio G 'My Friend' stamp in pearlescent lavender (Dew Drop). It then had two papers put on top from the 'Blossoms and Butterflies' Stack and then the matt on top of these. Paper flowers from my stash were added and handmade paper coloured using PM Lime green was torn and added in layers for foreground texture. Lastly the tag was edged and stamped and the butterflies punched.

PMs used today.

Thanks for looking and any kind comments gratefully received.

Have a lovely week all. XXX
