day filled with flowers

what a glorious weekend...not much crafting/blogging time (blogger seems to be working again)... so i thought a nice summer card to show (for my mother to give to her sister)
used the wonderful sketch over on:~

ALPHABET CHALLENGE~ I FOR INSECT (butterflies, bees, ladybirds and an ant)

CHARISMA CARDZ#26 ~ICE CREAM COLOURS ~ (chocolate,mint, strawberry and vanilla)

LILLI OF THE VALLEY#103~CELEBRATE ~birthday (sister)


used american crafts papers, LOTV girl stamp, american crafts branch stamp, magnolia flower, bee and ant stamps , coloured in promarkers, nestabilities label dies, quickutz tag die, elzybells stamps to decorate tags, 3 roses by wild orchid crafts,ribbon and glitter from stash.

well paul and myself finished laying our patio ~ perfect place as it catches the sun all day ~so a very hot place to work.......but now it is done , we can sit out with our table and chairs ~even plan to have our lunch out there today...... just need to get someone to fit a new lockable garden gate and we can just sit and relax in the garden...then some more decorating inside..........mmm that can wait!!

This is a beautiful card, Vanessa. You've followed the sketch wonderfully. I really love the glittery flowers and the garland - what a brilliant work you've done cutting it out! I'm sure your aunt will be delighted when she gets this :) Thanks for joining, and good luck in the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.
Hugs from Lisbeth
