"Mary, Mary........

......quite contrary, how does your garden grow?"

Since the release of my Art Deco ladies, I have neglected the Art Nouveau ladies and they were getting a little stroppy. So when I saw that the challenge on Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge was How Does Your Garden Grow? I immediately thought about using one of the set. I may have used my Daisy stamp from Funky Kits which I won at the beginning of last week but she hasn't arrived yet :-(

I have also agreed for my store to sponsor Moving Along With the Times and Crafty Catz Challenge blogs this week so I have used this as my GDT piece. MAWTT are asking for an Easel card and the sketch (albeit moved a little) is for Crafty Catz. Please forgive the fact that I cannot link these titles. I have added links in my sidebar for both of these challenges.

I have already said where the stamp is from, and you will find her and all her sisters in my store, and she is coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from a MCS Art Nouveau CD. I edged everything with Bushed Corduroy Distress Ink and the flowers are from my stash. I bought the smaller ones from Wild Orchid crafts but cannot remember for the life of me where the big flower was bought. I also went round the edge of the papers and the Nestie shape with my craft knife blade to distress the edges a little more but that is not very clear from the photo.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
Challenge 1. Totally Papercrafts - Distressing
Challenge 2. SCSC - How Does Your Garden Grow?

There may be another but I can't remember off the top of my head, lol. Will add it later today when I remember, if there is.

Have a good day. xx
