Cottage Rose

Hello Everyone, 
We have been all over with Emma's cricket but yesterday we had to go all the way to Coniston in the Lake District!  Emma's team won and what a stunning setting it was for a game of cricket and lots of sunshine too. 
After the 3 hour drive home last night, I'm worn out!!
This is one of those cards that has taken days to make...10 minutes here...10 minutes there etc! I finally got it finished, using a Stampendous Stamp called Cottage Rose.


I've coloured it with promarkers and layered it onto green card, just adding a few drops of liquid pearls to finish.
