JANE SHASKY 'FROM THE HEART OF THE GARDEN CD'

Hello again!
I'm back with another card - this time from a CD:




The image is from the Jane Shasky 'From the heart of the garden' CD - there are so many beautiful images on this double CD set that I'm sure to use it very often!
The papers are from LemonCraft 'house of roses', Stampin' Up ribbon and candy dots and butterfly punch from my stash.
You probably can't see it but I went around the papers with a dressmaking tracing wheel to add texture. I also inked the edges of everything.

Challenges:

Thanks for popping by and I hope you have a lovely weekend!
