Cute Card Thursday Challenge - In The Garden

Here is my card for the Cute Card Thursday challenge and this week the theme is 'In The Garden'. I am really pleased with this card, I used my watercolour pencils like paints by taking the colour directly from the pencil onto my waterbrush. I used one of my new Lily stamps from the new Lily and Milo range by Rachelle Anne Miller, this stamp is called 'My Little Friend' and also the Magnolia 'Birch Tree' stamp. I added pink flower soft to the tree to create blossom and inked around the card with a green ink pad.
Thanks for looking
Becky xx
