Crafting in the Garden


It's been another gorgeous day here today and so this afternoon I sat in the garden and made a card, which was really lovely.

I used this gorgeous Hanglar image that a friend, Margreet sent me a while ago and coloured her with PM's. I've distressed the edges of the cardstock & paper using my SU! distressing tool as there's a challenge over at Lovely Hanglar for a shabby look card, I'm also entering my card into Donna's Den of Crafts first challenge, which is Happy Birthday.

Stampin' Up! used:
Cardstock & Ribbon - Certainly Celery
Sentiment - Circle of Friendship
Punches - 1" 1-1/4" 1-3/8" and scallop circle

Let's hope this weather continues now!
