In The Garden with the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the

with this weeks theme being chosen by the very talented Helen and she has chosen the theme of 

In The Garden

we are sponsored this week by 
who are offering the winner 3 digis of their choice

So here is design team inspirational piece, but don't forget to hop over and see the rest of the Design Team's inspirational pieces.

Base layer and contrast is a pale pink card, with Bloomsbury Collection papers from Grimsby Crafts.  I tried something new this time around with the image plate and die cut the image outside the die cut, was thrilled with this technique and will most definitely be trying it again soon.  She actually looks as if she is swinging out of the circle, I thought.  With the Cheery Lyn grass die under her feet and those pretty little flowers growing in the grass and the Cheery Lynn butterflies floating around her.  The sentiment is from a Wild Rose Studio collection and the tiny pearls are from the Hobby House.

Here is a close up of the image called "Tressathe" by Krista at Saturated Canary and she is coloured in copics, with a white gel pen for highlights and a clear glitter sakuro pen for the stitching on her dress.
As always, I would like to thank all my wonderful followers and visitors for their lovely inspiring comments, which allow me to hop over and visit you in return.
