Quixotic Challenges - Let Your Garden Grow

Afternoon folks!

Hope you are well on this wet and windy day. Boy, it is feeling like Autumn has truly arrived .....leaves swirling around, cozy jammies and slippers on and dark evenings!

This week we have a challenge that will transport you right back to those summer days. The Quixotic Challenge is 'Let Your Garden Grow' (use flowers, leaves anything that interprets the outdoors)

For my card I have gone back through my stamp collection from Quxiotic Paperie and picked one of the original Miss Anya's. I do love this set and it will always remain in my collection.

She is coloured with prisma pencils . Creates a lovely soft look for her. The papers are Memory Box - Gossamer which will be back in stock really soon. I chose to use only one piece of the paper as it was so pretty I didn't want to cover it up. I used some flowers fom stash and some organza ribbon to tie a little knot and then finished it off with some Jenni Bowlin Pins. Again I didn't include a sentiment as I didn't want to cover up anymore of the gorgeous paper!

Finally before I leave I just wanted to let you know that Elaine now has on pre-order a gorgeous new stamp from SCACD. This stamp will be here in the next couple of weeks.

OK...back tomorrow with a little card for Sugar Nellie :)

Thanks for your visit today!

Today's card will up for sale on Etsy and Folksy later!
