Tilda in her garden

I have just been working in the garden but I am no gardener.
DH loved his garden and used to keep us in veg all the year round
but alas is now unable to look after it and I must do what I can.
I don't mind admitting that our garden is nothing like as tidy as Tilda's.

The colours on this card have not reproduced very true unfortunately.
In fact nothing I have done this week has worked out most now reside in the bin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hate wasting card and paper too and will salvage what I can.
The centre of the flower is a barely pink pearl and the tiny pearls are pale pink.
What a job I had getting them on too the little devils just wouldn't go where I wanted them.
I used the spica pen on tilda's hair, some stickles on the roses and dimension on her shoes.

  2. Hi Margaret, this is so lovely, I love Tilda. Such a fab butterfly. I know what you mean about colours they look so different on the photo.
    My hubby does our garden, trouble is he doesn't know the difference between a flower and a weed.
