Graphics 45 - Secret Garden

Hello Blog friends - it has been a few days since I have posted - I have had the honour of teaching workshops at the Paper Crafts Festival in Penrith, New South Wales - and it was wonderful - there will be more about that on another post.

My card today is created using some of the gorgeous Graphic 45 Secret Garden Collection - I have had this sitting on the shelf for a couple of months (head hug in shame) and fell in love with it the minute I opened it.  I used one of the gorgeous images to make this quick and easy card.

It really did not need much to create this 'shabby vintage' card - a Seam Binding Bow and some Want2Scrap© bling - too easy!

This card is for the following challenges: 
Catch The Bug - Anything Goes 
Sugar Creek Hollow - Anything Vintage Goes 
The Hobby House - November  Pearls 
ABC Challenge - Y for Yellow 
Sunshine Mail - Anything Goes
Mema's Crafts November Challenge - Anything Goes

As I mentioned previously, I will be adding a post with lots of photos of the Paper Crafts Festival and some of the fabulous people I met there - lots of talented Australian Designers and connected with facebook friends - it does not get much better than that!  

Thank you for your comments and all of the support you give me - you make blogging such an amazing place to be!! Your encouragement is such a blessing for me - it makes my day! God bless you!
