In the garden

Good afternoon all - hope you are having a lovely day. 

We have been over to see my Grandson Farran, her Mum Kathy and hubby Chris 
for a big breakfast and birthday cake for pudding. 

Lovely couple of hours. 

Now back and thought I would share my card for today with you. 

I started with one of my papers from my stash....

I made a whole load of gelli prints a few months ago using real fern leaves to make the images.
The Yellow and Green papers were not quite what I wanted so went for the red one. 

You can see that I have used punchinella off cut to make the circles. 

So with a Red fern leaf piece of paper I then stamped the Allium Clarity Stamps 
over the design. 

Mounted onto green card to make the red pop having used a black pen around the finished cut 
down card. 
And finally mounting onto a white card blank.

Rather pleased how a scrap / snippet of card can make a brand new design. 

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following 


Thank you for popping in and thank you so much for  your comments 
so have a great rest of the day and I will catch up tomorrow
with more thoughts and crafting all being well.
