Heloise Garden Gal

The inspiration for this layout came from the sketch over at I{Heart}2 Stamp along with the colours from In Style Stamps.

The image I've used is from the Robyn's Fetish and is called Heloise the Garden Gal and has been coloured using Promarkers.  I thought this image was quite apt for this time of year when we are all out in the garden planting our bedding plants and enjoying outside life.  The only problem with the good weather is that it takes me away from my card making - if only we could move our craft rooms outside eh?

The papers used on this card were out of my scrap box so unfortunately I dont know where they came from.  They have all been edged with Tim Holtz distress inks - peeled paint - and faux stitching added using a Marvy le Plume brown pen.

The buttons are from the Papermania capsule collection mini buttons - sunshine.
