HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW?

The inside...


Is the theme this week over on the Secret Crafter challenge. I've not used my SN stamps for a while so I dug out this sweetie by Elisabeth Bell called Reflective. She has been coloured with Polychromos pencils, cut out and mounted with 3D foam pad's. The paper is from the DCWV 'the mini stack 3'pad. I'm really enjoying digging out my old paper's and having a play! You may have notice I'm favouring a couple of punches at the moment,not used them for ages then all of a sudden I can't make a card without them! They are my MS Flourish punch and x-cut flower punch.Hope you're not bored of them yet as I've made a couple more card's featuring them :) . The sentiment is from stamps away, cardstock is provocraft, gems are from stash and Handstithing.I've also decorated the inside and stamped part of the image in the bottom right hand corner using Tim Holtz Antique Linen Ditress Ink, I think this really finishes a card don't you?


Well thanks for looking today,really appreciate it :)
