How does your garden grow at Country View Challenges

It's a special challenge this month at Country View Crafts as we have the wonderful Lin Brown joining us as a guest designer and she has chosen the theme 'How does your Garden Grow'. Please go take a look at her amazing art if you haven't seen her blog before and pop over to the challenge blog to see the wonderful inspiration from the team.

My tag has a textured background using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and dried marigold, shabby shutters, broken china and walnut stain DI.

The flowers are hand made using the Tim Holtz tattered flower garland strip die and layered over some red hessian..

The leaves are metal and have been painted with distress paints as was the little bird embellishment.

The sentiment has been generated on the PC, printed onto distress inked card.

I love making these extended tags, by adding an extra layer gives it a bit more space to add a sentiment and elongates it more.

Thanks to everyone who joined in our butterfly challenge last month it was great visiting your blogs and seeing all your wonderful creations. I hope you will take part again this month with a project that follows our garden theme and let's hope the month of May allows us to get out in our gardens more.

Take care.
