In the Garden

Hello peeps...hope you've had a fab Tuesday!

I'm back again with another creation...this time with a garden theme, using one of my favourite new stamps....


I've used a basic blue background and topped that with two different design papers and a lovely piece of bright yellow ribbon. I have topped my bright and cheerful background with the green house image that I have coloured with my Promarkers. Finally I finished off the top right hand corner with some faux stitching.

Now I bet you're thinking...why has Wedgie used all this bright paper....these aren't patterns you'd normally find in the garden! Well, this is because I have been inspired by the fab photo challenge at Passion for Promarkers this week....take a peep at this photo....now when I saw this fab collection of ribbons I instantly thought of a rainbow - hence the bright, cheerful stripey paper! I also love nothing better than a garden full of bright flowers...so this paper seemed perfect.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Passion for Promarkers - photo inspiration - I went for a rainbow look and added a ribbon!
Crafty Ribbons - flowers - I have some in my green house and some on my blue backing paper
Hooked on Crafts - flowers

With all this talk of flowers I thought I'd also show you my latest addition to my flat....this is Larry the lemon plant! He already has several lemons growing and currently smells amazing with all the blossom!
Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx
