CPS111 Happy gardening day


In keeping with my gardening theme, here is my latest creation.  A really simple one and I borrowed the layout from Card Positioning Systems sketch #111.
I had this cute gardening apron from Jolies and thought it would look good against a kraft background, so my card base is SU kraft and the papers are from a 7 gypsies paper pack that I have had for a couple of years!  Talk about hoarding......  I stamped a stitched leaf vine from a clear Basic Grey set and from the same set, the flowers on the right hand side of the card.  These were stamped in SU old olive and I took my SU ruby red marker and did some "doodling"/filling in on the flower centers (hard to see from the photo).  The flower embellishments are Primas that I coloured with Prismacolor markers in umber and cardinal.  I used some BG brads from the Archaic pack that my friend Yvonne gifted me with.  The sentiment is from an old SU set "Nice and Narrow" and I layered it on the same 7 gypsies dp.  Thanks for taking a peek.
