Craft A Scene - Week 3 - Create your own Flower Garden

I'm scheduling this post, because by the time this goes live I shall be on the high seas (well I hope they're not too high). Hubby and I booked a last minute deal to go to the Norwegian Fjords aboard the P & O ship Oceana. So the passports are ready, clothes sorted and now were just waiting to set off. Anyway enough of our holiday and onto todays card. It's week three over on the Craft A Scene blog, so we are still asking for your cards making a flower garden. For my card I have used all stamps from Chocolate Baroque, the cottage is from Home Sweet Home  set (you'll notice if you look at this set that I did not ink up the tree that was behind the cottage), the flowers at the front are from the Floral Edges set and finally the tree and tall flowers are from The Patchwork Landscape set. I drew the hills behind by hand and then used pro markers to colour the scene . Last of all I popped the scene onto some white card before mounting in all onto a 6x6 blue card. There's still plenty of time to join us this month, so do pop over to the blog and take at look, there is lots of inspiration for you there. One of the DT has even used an old embroidery transfer to create here garden. All I have to do now is hope that my Son does not forget to water my own garden and greenhouse, when he gets in from work this week.

Thanks for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
