In my Botanical Garden

morning everyone,

Were still sweltering in temperatures here in the UK and each time this happens I contemplate getting air conditioning in the bedroom and this year I wish I had done it last year :(

My card today is a GDT for The Ribbon Girl and the theme this week is stripes and you will see from my card that the Pion Design paper has some stripes in it.

The image I am sure you will recognise is from Magnolia and coloured with Distress Inks.  Our next workshop in Bedfordshire, UK is 9th August, if you are interested in learning to colour and cardmaking my style then please email me,  I am also working on a workshop for the North of England, just waiting for a couple more hotels to come back to me and then I will have all the info.

I will also be coming to Oslo, Norway in September, details to follow.....

The gorgeous papers I am sure you will also recognise are by Pion Design Linneaus Journal Botantical collection available from Live and Love Crafts.

Right, onto my card today.

The purple flowers were actually white and from The Ribbon Girl,  Colour Yourself Floribunda Roses White, and I sprayed them with Prima Bloom Spray Iris.

The leaves are from the strawberry die set, love them :)

The gorgeous lace is called 'Ophelia' Ivory Embroidered Tulle Lace

I used the cherry die for the top corner and cut from the Pion Design papers

The butterflies are also from the Pion Design border sheet in the collection.

A little grass added.......

And of course the butterfly border, which I used the Pion Desingn's matching palette for, love that everything matches and I then cut a second butterfly from the Vintage Flourish butterfly die using the Botanical Writing sheet of paper and added a pion design butterfly to the centre.

Hope you like it :)

This is stunning Tracy. I love this Tilda and she is coloured beautifully. Love the shape and the pretty embellishments.

I have checked work and yet again there are too many people off work on 9th August. I will keep my fingers crossed for the one in the north. I hopefully get to one eventually.
Have a lovely week.
Hugs Sharon. x
