Spring in Bloom - Garden Party #115

The weather has been amazing for the past week!  It is hotter than usual yet we have had some rain and as such the garden is coming into full bloom.  I enjoyed an extra long weekend and have finally enjoyed a bit of time in my craftroom. 

This card is part of the Shabby Tea Room Garden Party challenge.  The sketch design was an older MojoMonday sketch.

Card recipe:
Green strips - K&Company Que Sera Sera
Centre frame with lily - gcd Studios Antiquities
Butterfly - K&Company TC Blossomwood
Plaid tag - Lost & Found Portobello Road
Doily - Tim Holtz with Black Soot distress ink
Flower - ribbon hand-stitched
"just a note" stamped with Ranger permanent ink on silk ribbon
Grommet, gem flower and gem stones - unknown

For this challenge, we were asked to use these colours for inspiration and add a dimensional flower.

I hope the weather is nice your way and thanks for dropping by!
