Southern Girls Secret

The Southern Girls have a great challenge for you this fortnight, we want you to "Show Us A Secret" !

I used The gorgeous Paper Shelter digi image, My Little Garden ,Paper Shelter are one of the sponsors for this fortnight, check out Southern Girls for full details of all the Sponsors.

I printed up the image twice, coloured them using Copics and cut the main part of the image out from one along with one of the bees. I shaped the watering can and pot and decoupaged them using Pinflair gel.

I stamped my greeting and mounted it on the card using foam pads around the edge only.

The "Just because" greeting is an old stamp from my stash I stamped it then used gel to add the bee to the end.

I was then able to slide this in the space under the Birthday greeting.

The edges of the papers were all distressed and some stitching, glossy accents and stickles added along with a die cut flower and button just like a tiny sunshine lol!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
PSC21, Die cut,
PTT57, Anything goes, 
SOS41, Sentiment,
TTT71, Stitches,
LTC4, Stitches,
MIM78, Anything goes,
Cutiepie, Flowers,
Paper Cupcakes, Critters.
Thanks for stopping by,

P.S.  If you are interested in joining a fab Design Team,Southern Girls have a DT call on!
