Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well weve had some fabulous weather here in the UK, and my garden has just gone crazy, everything is growing like weeds so the choice of theme is

Flower Power

For my own card I chose this image
 

 And this fabulous image is titled "A Green Thumb" and you will find it here, I printed her of onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I used a square die to cut her out and then used a fancy one with green card and then mounted her onto this. The sentiment is one from my stash that I have stamped and layered it up with another piece of green card to.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of the same green card I used for mounting the image and the sentiment. I then used the backing paper that came with the image and you will find it here, I then placed my mounted image in the center towards the top with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
I then used 6 yellow roses and wrapped a piece of white ribbon and tied a bow and stuck it to the bottom left hand corner.
