Flower Garden

I hope you've all been able to enjoy some of the wonderful sunshine we've been having.  Apart from a day out with a picnic on Tuesday, I spent most of the week in the garden, a lot of the time doing 'jobs' but I did find time to relax as well.
Not much crafting, but I did make a birthday card using the Tim Holtz Flower Garden stamps.  I used Kraft for my base and then used a Memory Box stencil with Worn Lipstick DI. The  image was stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with Distress Markers.  The butterfly was cut using a Brusho scrap, and then coated with Rock Candy Crackle paint.  The sentiment is  Tim  Holtz.
I am entering this at:

Thank you for visiting, I do appreciate it.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend and hopefully some sunshine.

This is exceptionally pretty and the flowers coloured so beautifully.
Avril, many, many thanks for your visits and comments to my Blog during my absence. Reading comments helped me feel as though I was still part of this wonderful community of ours even though my absence was longer than I ever imagined, so heartfelt thanks.

Oh, how lovely! The watercolouring on the flowers is gorgeous, and I love how the panel pops against the rich brown of the background layer. What a great card, Avril.
