Inspired By Nature

Hello and good morning.... I hope your week is going well?

The AAA Card Challenge this week is "Inspired by Nature"


Here's my card


Like many of you, we've had our fair share of rain and the alcohol ink background here is to reflect that together with the lush greenery and the colours that are beginning to grace my garden


Fortunately we've had good weather these past few days which means the workmen can get on with the landscaping work on one half of my garden


But hey! This is the UK and anything can happen where the weather is concerned so I'm baking to keep them happy whilst they work Lol!

I'm hoping to catch up with you all today and can't wait to see what you've been creating

Have a beautiful day

~ Ros ~

Never can win can we...when will the baking be done? I'll be right over..lol...yes retirement, but I get very little done!

Your background certainly does remind me of a rain soaked garden. We're expecting thunder storms today, which is unusual for our area. The UK and the Oregon coast have a lot in common when it comes to the weather! Pretty dies, beautifully placed, and an utterly gorgeous background!

Glad you had a break from the rain! Your AI background is a stunner, Ros--love the glittery die cut with it! Sending love & hugs, Greta

As you say, this is the UK ...here we had unexpectedly warm and sunny weather yesterday. Some people were straight into their strappy vests, but I'll not be 'casting a clout till May is out'.

I love the shape of the die-cut panel - it shows off the inked background beautifully and you can't go wrong with glitter.

I cant believe i wrote this great big blurb telling you how amazing your card is and an error came up. So will keep it short this time.

Its stunning, amazing and I love it.

Gorgeousness! Those colors blended so beautifully together and the gold is such a pretty accent. We have been getting rain in torrents the last week or so and now we have a tropical depression aiming right for us. sigh Gonna be squishy here for a while.
