…you ought to seriously re-examine your life

Sharing a card featuring one of the curvy girls from Stamping Bella, this one is called Gardener.

Over at Allsorts they have a twist to their challenge to be inspired by the challenge prize, being a stamp set from Rare Earth.  The stamp set features lovely garden elements, which made me think about all the floral stamp sets I own.  They would have been good for the friend whose birthday this is for but then I also saw the prompt at Addicted to CAS.  This stamp is so the style of my friend, who loves to potter around in the garden but manages to look effortless glamourous doing it, even if she is in denim overalls!

For the layout of my card I’ve used the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  My stamped image takes the place of the rectangular element and rather than circle elements I used an inlaid die cut flower for one and a cluster of butterfly sequins and Bitty Gems for the other two.
