In the garden

Good morning, it's time for a new challenge at 
this month we are sponsored by Stamp Addicts

 the optional theme is Garden Delights.
I used some beautiful Lavinia Stamps on an ink blended background to make the front of my card.
The inside is a simple pop up design with a cut out arch on the pop up bit. The wall and sky are stencilled, the rest is various stamps, mainly Lavinia, I think just the grass is a different brand.

 Over at the challenge blog you will find loads of inspiration from the rest of the team, so it's really worth a visit,  as always the theme is optional- as long as the main focus of your project is stamping - anything goes! 

Thanks for visiting

I really like the design of this one Chris, the use of the brickwork stencil inside really works so well to create the cottage garden feel.
