Girl in the Garden

It is the end of the weekend, and a busy one at that.  I can never believe how quickly the weekend flies by! At least I did get a chance to do a little bit of crafting in between the dishes and the laundry and tidying up etc. etc.

This card was inspired by the Polkadoodles weekly challenge.  The image came from the Double Sprinkles of Kraft CD and it is coloured with pro markers.  I used a Crafter's Companion embossing board to make the flower layers on some satin card and patterned cardstock.  The flowers at the bottom were made by colouring 250 gsm paper with pro markers, cutting out the petals with a tonic flower punch, and assembling them with hot glue.

I don't tend to do much crafting with 'people' on my cards, but I have to say, this little gal won me over.
