LOC NR The Future

Spring is here and I am loving seeing the garden springing to life every day - such beauty after a cold winter. 

The Layers of Color Garden Wall Frame cling art stamp seems to capture this beautifully along with the sentiment from The Encouragement art stamp set.

I have coloured the image with SU Chalks using a Blender Pen.

This sentiment is such an encouraging one and such a truth.

Some pleated Seam Binding is topped off with a flower cut from some lace and a button.  The embossing folder is from Stampin' Up.

This card is for the following challenges:
My Mum's Craft shop - lots of layers
Stampavie and More - pearls and lace
