Sir Stampalot February Challenge; In the Garden

In the Garden - that's this month's theme for the February challenge at Sir Stampalot.
Well, we can dream! I haven't been in the garden much lately but hopefully we'll have a lovely summer and can enjoy it again. Just have a look at the beautiful DT cards and you'll be reaching for the seed catalogues..

I've gone "bright" again with this one.The bold paper is Wild Blossom by Trimcraft and I coloured my digi image to match.The image itself (which you can find HERE) is a drawing of the little arbour in our back garden and I love to chill out there when I get a chance. Last year we had to cut the climbers completely back to put a new roof on so I hope they grow again..

The little flowers on the climber were made using "scraps" from the Tonic Studios floral border punch and the larger ones by Tonic Studios medium Flower head punch

Check out the lovely garden themed prize this month and don't forget to have a look at the Sir Stampalot website for any new stash you might need.

    Yes, a lovely Summer would be so nice and what a prefect place to sit with a nice cool drink. I an but dream, we are under about a foot of snow this morning.

    I love the bright Summery colours you have chose for your card and those corners frame the image perfectly.
