Well it certainly is a bit cooler whilst I am typing this and we have had some much needed rain - which seems appropriate for Margaret's challenge -' Up the garden path '.
I am off out to a Garden Party in a little while. Our parchment tutor has a beatiful garden and every year about this time we 'parchers' gather in her garden and chat and put the world to rights. We hardly ever chat about parchment. Funny that!
Any way - my card for the challenge. Much to our Wynn's amusement I have strayed from my 'square is a shape' philosophy and voila!
I had great fun making this but must confess there were a few mutterings - but what's crafting without them. We do get more when doing parchment. That's because you can't just print another piece and start again.
It really does look better in real life. I know we all say that - but it does. The lovely little sprigs of trailing flowers were from my embellishment pot. They are stitched and I bought them from a friend at a show many moons ago.
The stone paving effect backing card is brilliant. It looks so realistic that when you touch it you expect bumps. It was a free download.
The folder on the CD is called ' Secret Garden' and HERE I found this beautiful music of the same name
Our team have made some super cards to give you inspiration. I will be showing those when I do the blog. Please visit their own blogs and share their enthusiasm. They always seem to make the challenge come alive.
Bye for now - off for some eats and perhaps a glass or two.
