Flower Child

It is Saturday morning here in Australia and looks like a beautiful Autumn day - I could not resist sharing this card with you - it has a garden feel to it.

I made this card quite a while ago, it makes me think of spring/ or summer and seemed a perfect choice to share today.

The image is a free digital one and the frame is the Spellbinders Lattice Rectangle Nestabilities - love the elegance of this frame, it works with any style.  I have created my own Designer Paper by stamping a flower from the retired Layers of Color Merci Bouquet art stamp set onto some lightly patterned paper and colouring it with Chalks - I love the pretty shabby feel it gives.

The flower is one I from my stash - off an artificial stem, gathered along the way...and the leaves from the Spellbinders Foliage Shapeabilities.

Some recycled lace and those gorgeous pearls from Want2Scrap - a must for me!
