mistress mary

I've followed a sketch by Stampin for the weekend today for a change and I've not used a SC digi lol. There are a few garden themed challenges and I chose the lime green because, in the sunshine, at this time of year the grass and leaves are very bright and lush. I've been watching alot of the Chelsea Flower Show on TV  just love that wild loose style of gardening and have been telling hubby to leave the weeds which are all the  rage and Hugh F W  says we can eat the nettles at the weekend ! I don't think he's convinced because I can hear him revving the streamer up as I type.



The background paper is from Elusive Images and the polka dot , daisy dots  and beige doodle buttons are by Pink Petticoat . The cute image is by Mo called Mistress Mary coloured with Promarkers and cut with a spellbinders die. Label is by Bits of ivory from Cuddly Buddly. Ribbons from stash, jute from my dinning room chair lol.

I've hand drawn the backgound and distressed all the papers and image. The buttons are from a necklace I bought and have recycled.

I'm entering this in the following challenges
