Cute Card Thursday 'In The Garden' Challenge
The challenge at CCT this week is 'In The Garden', anything to do with gardens is fine for the challenge as long as it's cute!!
I have used one of my new High Hopes stamps, Bethany Angel for this challenge, isn't she sweet. I have coloured her with Prismacolors and Sansador and added lots of glitter to her wings. The papers are from K + Co and the flowers and buttons are from my stash. I ran the yellow paper through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.
Once the card was put together I decided it needed a sentiment , luckily it stamped ok!
It's lovely and sunny here at the moment, hope it's nice wherever you are. I'm off to the craft shop this afternoon to get my demo cards made for next Tuesday and then we should be going to buy the paint for the kitchen tonight, lime green, hubby doesn't really agree but I spend the most time in there!!
