Down in the Garden ...

I have a CAS card to share today for the launch of the new 
which for this fortnight is
'Down in the Garden'
so we want to see your lovely creations with
say flowers or garden animals, it is up to you.

I have used the gorgeous
stamp set designed by Wendy Cotterill and 
bought to us by Joanna Sheen called 'Herb Garden'
which includes these delightful poppies.
One of my all time favourite flowers and as they
are just so elegant I have kept it very clean & simple
and I have decoupaged the flowers for that extra pop!

I have also used -
Kraft card blank, ribbon, button, charm, 
sentimentgems & Majestic squares die
Can you believe it only stitching on the button for this one!

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I do hope
that you will be able to join us for this challenge?
As always there is a £ 15 voucher to spend with
Joanna Sheen for the winner.

We have a top five too and daily talents spots
and weekly blog candy, whats not to like?

Take care, love
