Secret Garden

Hi Folks,

A very miserable day weather wise here in the N.E, so I gave myself a 'craft day' and managed to finish another card using the lovely  Secret Garden papers, this time I thought I would use my Cabinet dies and make it look like a Secret Garden.  A little bit of cutting, some hand made flowers and leaves and that's it! oh, and some Vintage Photo Distress ink -  Quick and easy!
I am entering this at:
  Dream Valley Challenges - Summer Days
  Ladybug Crafts - Say it with Flowers
  Cards Galore - Bingo (Flowers/Die cuts/Summer)
  c2cu - Summer Days - Fun in the Sun
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Just a quick post,
Thanks for looking,

Avril xx

The frame also adds to the sense of nostalgia those images create.
A beautiful card, so special in many ways.

One can come a long way with beautiful papers and no stamps, and this card proves just that. I like how you've put everything together on this card - gorgeous!
