Flowers in My Garden


I hope all the moms out there had a lovely Mother's Day. The highlight of my day was a two hour nap. My dh was traveling all week and I was worn out!

As I mentioned before, I love images from the back. This one is called Flowers in My Garden from A Day For Daisies. I think it's such a sweet image. I colored her skin very pale, to go with that red hair, I think she is a little Irish lass for sure.

I used the Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch #100 for the layout of this card.

Thanks for dropping by today. Hope you had a lovely weekend!

Card Recipe:
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI ssw, Spring Rain, Pure Poppy, PTI dotted, DCWV orange print, October Afternoon red print
Embellishments: copics, nestes, Doodlebug brads, Offray ribbon, Cuttlebug embossing folder
