Cute Card Thursday - Challenge 8

This week, a nice easy theme, anything to do with gardens. Could be people gardening, having fun in the garden, a garden scene or perhaps some little animals you might find in the garden.
Make it cute and have loads of fun!
I enjoyed making this card as I haven't used my sizzix & quickutz garden dies for a long time. I was in such a hurry to get it finished that I used a Tilda I had already coloured but think now I should have stamped another & coloured it in orange tones! but would that have been too much orange ??

Hi Sharon, good I'm first, don't know what you are worrying about I think the Blue is a great foil for the oranges. Great card as usual

Hey....... it's me. My battery's a bit low at the moment. KMK was a blast and finished on Sunday. Straight into production for Guys and Dolls on Monday.... and I resigned last night in a fit of artistic temperament!!! Don't regret it though!
Anyway working on Les Miserables for July is enough to be going on with!
Love this card -tho I seem to be in the minority in finding the blue a little dominant. Maybe a more washed out blue??? I like orange and green as a combo, but I'm sure many would disagree with that ;-)
BTW -how do you do your colouring -it's always fab! Care to pass on a few tips???
Hope you are having the sunny day we are!
Much love,

Happy Birthday to you,
which version of that famous ditty would you like???
Seriously Happy Birthday for yesterday ! I hope you got your heart's desire. LOL
Yep well my monchrome card was disqualified being on an aqua mat. I had no choice -I had nothing in lilac tones. Never mind, I had a go....
Thanks for the tips for colouring -may get round to it some day, but I seem to spend so many hours admiring other people's work that I don't get any crafting done myself!!!
Much love,
SammieJay xxx
