'In The Garden' with Penny Black

This week's challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge is 'In The Garden'.

With our nightly visits from Mrs Spike, and all the references to skipping ropes in the Snippets Playground, there was only one image for it:
I used:

- 4.75" x 4.75" square white card stock

- green card from the snippets folder

- backing papers from Wild Rose Studio's 'Annabelle's Meadow' paper pack

- Penny Black Stickeroo from the 'Bouncing with Joy' set

- Craftwork Cards sentiment popped on top of a green card oval (using SU punch)

- leaf and flowers punched from snippets of paper and card - they show up better in real life :(

- Josy Rose nail heads

Bless, I'll be looking for daisy chains in the garden now to check if Mrs Spike has been skipping during her nightly excursions :)

Lovely card, Di. I like those papers and of course the Stickeroo is fab - nicely bringing together the hedgie and the daisy chains :) I've ordered the smaller oval punch ... yes, I succumbed, yet again, to temptation, but what could I do, I really needed it to go with the scalloped one I already have? Hugs, Elizabeth x

Blow. I beheaded all the daisies on the front lawn at the weekend. Best get out there with the fertilizer then. Love your card and the hedgie is so cute. I only have one penny black stamp. Must get some more as they really sturdy stamps. Was going to mention the rubber on em but don't want anyone getting the wrong end of the stick. Hugs Mrs A.
