All Things Grow - CR84FN11



I've been itching to have a play with Mona's Challenge......Look at the inspirational picture...It has all the little things I love, stitching, cottons, ribbons and tapes yum!




I couldn't resist using the January released set All Things Grow, from AnnaBelle Stamps. The elegant grasses and pretty butterflies are lovely to stamp.

I've added one of my crocheted ecru five petal flowers and instead of cutting off the end I wrapped it around the scalloped card.......love how that looks!
Some sponging, distressing and a double stamped butterfly popped up on some foam and I have another Birthday card ready for this year........whoopee!!
