Gardening Gems at My Time to Craft

Hello again!

It's my busy week for challenges this week and the second for today

Today's challenge at My Time to Craft is

Gardening gems

Heres my DT card for the challenge

I love this little girl and I have to confess she reminds me of myself when I was little, my hair was just like that.  My husband said the same thing when he looked at the card , probably because we had the old photos out quite recently, so he was reminded.  I have to confess that this card was a happy accident.  I made it for another challenge that I thought was ribbons and pearls but it turned out to be lace and pearls so it didn't fit!  I could have pulled that gorgeous ribbon off and replaced it with lace but I just couldn't bring myself to do it because it wouldn't have looked half as nice and  I knew it would fit in with another challenge sometime - and this is it!

This is a lovely challenge - a chance to get out all your flowers and pretty papers and garden related stash and make a lovely spring themed  card perfect for our sunny spring days - that we're not getting, but at least you can make a card and pretend lol !!
