Vintage Garden

It is Tuesday which means it is time for another fun challenge

The sweet and talented Ros is our host and is challenging us to
a inspirational photo challenge.  You can hop on over to CCCB
to see the beautiful photo!

So here is what I came up with for this weeks challenge. 



I made this little ATC..  



The paper I used is from K&Co.. and I punched the cute little 
butterfly from old book pages. 


A little stitching and some little lace flowers with pearls added to the middle. 
make for an easy ATC..


So I was having so much fun playing with these colors the other
night I just kept on playing.. 


So here is a tag as you can see that I made using the same 
Inspirational photo.. 

Thanks so much for the fun challenge Ros.  It was a lot of fun.. 
To play along with us this week you can hop on over to CCCB.
To get all the details.. Or just take a peak at what all the DT created.


I just wanted to say thanks so much to Jean over at Bluebird Paperie.
I just received box full of so many wonderful goodies.
I can't wait to play with it all. I was the lucky winner of her blog candy!



This is not all that she sent.. So now you can see why I am so happy..


Thanks so much for stopping by my sweet friends,
till next time!!
