Gardening Nut

Well I am back with my second card for you so here it is:

For this one I have used an image from Bugaboo Stamps and coloured her with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The sentiment also comes with the image so I coloured the little heart with a Promarker and mounted it onto a tag made from gold leather effect card. The brown and white papers are from Papermania and the pink paper is from my stash. I have backed everything on gold leather effect card. I have used 3 different ribbons and a natural twine ribbon and layered them together and added a little white bow. I used a die to cut out some leaves and then raided my flower box. Most of the flowers are from my local craft warehouse except the tiny white ones which were from Ebay. I don't usually use lots of flowers on my cards but I thought I would give it a go and I was really pleased with how it turned out. I have then added some pearls and Candi to finish off.

We are off to Donington today for my first ever Craft Festival so I am quite excited. Charlie is coming along so I am sure he will find someone to charm as he loves doing that. If any of you are going and see me walking around with a little smiley boy please say hi. If not then enjoy your weekend.
