Shirleys2Girls has a new challenge called 222 World Wide Challenge, which closes at 2pm on the 22nd. The challenge is the nursery rhyme "Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?" with the colour palette of lavender, orange, lime, black and white. Phew! Quite a challenge to tie the zingy colours with an English country garden inspired rhyme :).
I started with a pretty maid sitting in the garden (a Gorjuss stamp), being contrary by not doing any gardening even though lots of flowers are springing up all over. She is sheltering under a tree with vivid lime leaves coming into bud (Elusive Images arboretum stamp) and the flowers are from Craftwork Card's graceful grasses designs.
I've framed the card with orange and added a lime ribbon. The left hand side has shells stamped onto it for the cockle shells, they don't show up too well but they are there! The lavender blooms are highlighted with Glossy Accents and there is a little gold glitter glue in the centre of the orange flowers. This is the first card I've made for a few days, hope you like it :)
