The DT were lucky to have some images to work with: this is Heloise the Garden Girl isn't she sweet?


A lovely friend will be 50 soon, and this is the ideal image, as she loves her gardening! I used a Spellbinders Labels Fourteen Die, with a Lattice die behind it to look like a trellis. The flowers are cut with a Crealies Die, and I layered two die-cuts for each one. The vine is from a Cheery Lynne Fanciful Flourish die, which I cut into pieces and put behind the flowers.

The sentiment is Penny Black and the numbers are Tim Holtz grunge, covered in Mustard Seed Distress Ink and Glossy Accents. The papers are by Nitwits.

I used Snippets for everything, so I'm joining in at Pixie's Crafty Snippets Challenge - Hi, guys! *waves*

Go and see the gorgeousness that my teamies have created!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

LOve the way you've combined these 2 S/B dies. Perfect as the mats for your little gardening cutie. This is just so spring & sunshine-y feeling. Will make turning 50 much brighter I'm sure. That just still a youngster, but at the time, it didn't feel that way! (well, speak for myself on that one!). Good to see ya in the Playground, and TFS such a cute card. Hugs
