Rose Garden............

Ohhh we're having a fabbie week for sunshine this week and it should last over the holls as well....aren't we lucky, at least I can get some more gardening done so I've got an extra busy weekend planned no rest for the wicked as they say............I've gone slightly over the top with this card, the image is a new one by Czes Pachela available from Cuddly Buddly called rose garden and its different from the usual images he draws......very Victorianna or is it Ewardian....hmmm not that good at history anyhow back to the card, I struggle with flowers and emellishments, I admire some of these cards that ooddles of flowers and embellies on and they look divine but when it comes to that part for me ......I struggle, so I may have gone slightly overboard with this card, I need to go to embellishment school and try harder....lol. The image has been colouring with twinkling h20s, and the papers are new called country house, they are very reminiscent of toile wallpapers and come in a variety of colours I've used the Damson colour pallette. I used the Parisian border from Spellbinders and the other fleur de lys accents are also from that set as well.


Challenges.
Pollycraft.....Sketch and vintage.
Cupcake.....lots of layers.
Sir Stampalot......ladies and fashion.
Top Tip Tuesday.....anything goes.

Have a lovely day off to work now
catch you all later
hugs
