It's my Dads younger sisters 93rd birthday tomorrow and this is the card I made for him to give her. Just like my Dad she's a keen gardener so I decided to make a garden scene using a LOTV image from the 'garden delights' art pad which I cut with a circle nesting die. The card base is 8 inch, the papers are Dovecraft and Paper Cellar and the fence is a Die-namics die cut from a snippet of kraft card. Then came the hard part for me... I'm not very good with flowers and usually only add 2 or 3 but I've managed 12 of differing sizes for this 'garden' and as no garden is complete without wildlife I added a Cheery Lynn die butterfly with a swirly pearl flourish trail. I finished it off by adding a computer printed sentiment.
