Cottage Garden


Don't you just love Bank Holiday Mondays? Guaranteed rain! To be honest though I'm not bothered as everything I have planned for today involves me being indoors.
Me and OH have started de-cluttering ready for the move. I can't wait to have some wardrobe space again!

Dad called last night and asked me to make a couple of cards for him by the weekend, and this is one of them:

 The image came free in a gift pack from Create and Craft. The papers are papermania. The sentiment is computer generated. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I've given them a coat of stickles. I've used my new Memory Box corner die and my Martha Stewart doily lace punch. Pearls, ribbon and pins were in my stash.

Due to the thickness of the card, I decided to make it a box instead of trying to cram it into an envelope:

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Wild Orchid Challenge - Things with wings
Totally Papercrafts - Bingo- Blue, ribbon & pearls
Divas by Design - Anything Goes

Right- where are those charity bags? See you soon!
