Summer Gardening...



I was having a root around in my scrap paper box this morning and came across these papers so decided to make a card with them.  I can't remember where they came from as they are about 10 years old.

I have coloured Tilda with promarkers and paper pieced her dress.  I then doodled some pencil lines to give her some movement. To get her to look as if she was holding the trowel I cut slits and threaded the trowel through.  The trowel was part of an old sticker set.  The watering can has been die cut from silver mirri card.  The fabric flowers are from my stash and I have added some large pearls to the centres. 

My card stopper panel has been layered with card and more paper.  I added some ribbon threaded lace to the top.  Finally I attached a sentiment which says "To a lovely grandmother on your special day".

This is such an absolutely adorable card! I am in love with your color palette, which felt soothing and energetic at the same time. I also love the two-tone effect you used on the flowers. Lots of great texture and layers and this was a real treat to see! Thank you for sharing your work with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
