Define Nature

Hello All,

Time for another challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges and our theme is


Hmm, now how to define nature? Do you think of trees, or plants or the littled winged creatures found within them? I went with a bit of a combination of both for my creation this month, using both flowers and butterflies.

This card was created for the Mum of a friend of mine, who loves Paris and the colour purple. I apologise for the poor quality photo - the light was horrible and I think all these drugs for my asthma and chest infection are making me tilt to the left - my photo is crooked.

The image of course is another darling Tiddly Inks one - Wryn Spring Bling. My Tiddly Inks obsession means this is a fast growing collection of images.

I wish the colours had shown up properly, for this card has wonderful pale greens and pinks through the background papers. The pearls are the palest green. I have added some sparkly purple gems to her hair clips. All cardstock and the lace is from my stash.

The prize this month is from Digital Delights, who are offering our lucky winner $5 worth of digi images.

I hope you'll join us!

Entered into the following challenges:
Crafts and Me Challenges - Lace
Ruby's Rainbow - Butterflies
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Can you Digi It - Purple
Bearly Mine - Things with Wings
