In the garden

Another month flown by and another Penny Black and More challenge for the month of August. This time the challenge is "In the garden". I think this is a nice and easy challenge so get out your craft stash and make a card for this month's challenge. There are several prizes up for grabs as usual and you have almost 4 weeks to enter. All the details are on the PB blog and you can use the link above to check them out.
I made my card as Summery as I could using the "Mimi and friend" Penny Black stamp, lovely Roses, floral and leaf die cuts, butterflies, buttons and to finish off, a Birthday sentiment. I also added some faux stitching and I am really happy with the result.
I have entered my card into several challenges listed below. Any/ ends 11th Aug. Summer blooms/ends 8th Aug. Summertime/ends 5th Aug.   Birthday/ends 5th Aug.  Any goes/ends 5th Aug. Any/ends 5th Aug.  Any/ends 13th Aug. Any/ ends 20th Aug.   Stitching/ ends 6th Aug.       Summer/ ends 13th Aug. Any/ends 6th Aug. Fav colour combo/ends 6th Aug.   Any/ends 6th Aug.  Any/ends 14th Aug.   Any/ends  7th Aug.  Bright & sunny/
