How does your garden grow?

This week the challenge at Pear Tree Designs is ‘BEST WISHES’.So any creation featuring these very words is the order of the week!We also have the fabby Lilac Lemon Designs as sponsors this time too.So head on over for details on how to play along.Don’t  forget to check out the wonderful DT inspiration and welcome Susie as our new member!

I’ve used a stamp from the Cute Characters Set 1 and coloured her with Promarkers.The sentiment is from the same sheet.The papers are a freebie My Minds Eye pad that came with a past issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.The coloured card is Papermania Textured.I’ve used a mix of Nestabilities Classic Ovals and Classic Scallop dies.To create the tag I punched a hole with my Crop-o-Dile and set a heart shaped eyelet and threaded it onto a length of waxed cord.I cut some felt flowers with the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Sizzix die and topped them with some square Papermania buttons also threaded with the same cord.I used a large corner rounder punch too to add some interest.
