Down in the garden ~Sketch

Hello bloggers today's card has been made following a sketch.

This card began as a white 6x6 card blank.  To the front I adhered some mint green glitter card that I cut down to 6x6.   Next I used a piece of green gingham paper and stamped my image onto that using pine needles distress ink and Woodware 'garden babies' stamp set.  This was then water coloured using mustard seed, pine needles and Victorian velvet distress inks.  Next with a piece of plain green cardstock I stamped a daisy all over the cardstock using pine needles distress ink and the same stamp set.  I then inked the edges of the cardstock too.  Using some green patterned paper I die cut a sentiment strip using Spellbinders 'ribbon banner lg' die set.  I then stamped my sentiment using pine needles distress ink.  The flowered background was adhered to the glitter card and the sentiment banner was added to this and finally the topper was adhered on top.  Using Marianne 'butterflies' die set I die cut two small butterflies from some patterned paper and adhered them into the top and bottom right corners.  A further larger butterfly was die cut from the same paper using spellbinders 'les papillons' die set. It was then adhered to the left hand side of the card to finish it off.
