How does your garden grow ?



It's my turn to host the challenge at Allsorts this week so a fairly predictable theme of 'How does your garden grow', all the gardens are bursting with colours right now and I also thought it fitting for this weekends Midsummer's Day and Summer Solstice. There are two prizes this week some nautical stamps and tags plus one from me as it's my Birthday this week !

I thought this Penny Black stamp was perfect for the theme, I stamped the whole image out, cleaned the stamp then repeat stamped just the floral border and coloured with Wink of Stella pens and created a bit of a background using Pan Pastels, not a lot more to say really so as the Meerkats would say "Simples".

Hope you all have a good weekend.
