In the garden this week

Good morning everybody,

Over at the colour challenge of the Outlawz this week it was my turn to choose an inspirational photo for you to use. Take anything from the photo that inspires you and build your card round that. Just tell us what it is that was your inspiration.

My card was inspired by the lovely garden with trees. So perfect for playing in, as shown in the image. Also loved the fancy fencing.

Our sponsor is Lunagirl Images and the DT have used a selection of their images on the cards this week. We would love you to come and join us.










I made a centre step card for a change.

Paper - I used a selection of papers from my stash. The paper behind the trees was made with a brick stencil and texture paste.

The image was coloured with Distress inkpads and matted onto a scalloped square.

The trees are a Marianne Design diecut.

The fences are  Memory box diecuts.

I will enter it in the following challenges:
