In The Garden with Creative Inspiration

Hello and welcome didnt we do well today at the olympic and may this just be the start of the medals. Well done to all. Now who doubted that Bradley wouldnt win gold.
Ok it is Wednesday again and that means another fab challenge at CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS. This week our challenge is IN THE GARDEN now wouldnt we all like to be there if the sun would come out yes it is raining here in Manchester although it is warm and I did think about doing some washing.
Our sponsor for this challenge is
pop over to the challenge blog and checkout the prize along with a discount code for all that enter.
For my card I used this fab Hydrangea stamp which I also have a sticker to match but tried my hand at colouring with my promarkers. Picture isnt brilliant but I placed the sticker next to it and I must say was fairly pleased with it. I am not the best person to colour flowers. Dp is dovecraft and some other I have had for ages. This is a 8x8inch card which was commissioned by a neighbour for his ex wife. How nice is that. Use a M.S. punch for the butterfly. The Happy Birthday is from a old SeeD set i have. Memory box diecut in top corner and the oval was cut with a Xcut die. Some ribbon and a few pearls coloured to match to finish. I have done the inside to match.
