DoCrafts Go Green Garden Beauty birthday card

 Hello everyone and welcome to Simply Create Too Challenge No 108

This time the theme is Ladies Only so dust off those supplies and make a card for one of the many women in your life.

I'm on a mission to try and get more use out of the older stuff in my stash so I pulled out the Docrafts Go Green Garden Beauty stamp set that I got soon after I first started making cards. Spring is a busy time in the garden and the tasks seem never ending so this sentiment brings on a wry smile. I'm grateful that my DH enjoys gardening so my imput can be restricted to picking the pretty flowers! This was a very quick card to make, so would be useful if you are short on time. I stamped the image on some white card and coloured it with Copic markers.

I cut a panel of green card, die cut the My Favourite Things Wonky Window shape from it, and placed it as a frame over my image. I stamped and embossed the birthday greeting in white and then raised the panel with fun foam onto the base white card.

To finish it off I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the watering can and placed it on the edge of the frame.

I'd love to see what you come up with for our challenge this time, so why not head on over to the Simply Create Too Blog to see some more inspiration and join in with us this time.

I'd like to play along with
