Wedding Card and Gardening

I created this Wedding card yesterday when the computer thought I should not be online. I used a Bazzil Bling Card for the base card. Rose patterned vellum along the bottom with a 'Congratulations' sticker greeting and a wavy clear glitter sticker border along the top edge of the vellum. For the topper I used my first ever inchie which I created for the Black and White theme (I originally posted here) over at Craftmad. I covered the inchie in a piece of sheer material which has gold flecks through it. Layered in onto Gold jak paper and rose patterned vellum.

After the card making I had some breakfast. Computer still wouldn't let me online to see what everyone had created so I decided it was a beautiful day and headed outside to tidy up four of our gardens. Totally enjoyed it. The photos below were taken by my 13yo daughter......her version of gardening. :-)

This photo shows an orchid that has decided to grow in one of our bottlebrush trees. Don't you love surprises in nature.

Bottlebrush flower up close. Beautiful...the lorikeets, honey eaters and Cairns Birdwing butterflies were totally enjoying them.

My daughter found a friend..... not!!!
Had to share this as Scruff is once again too cute.....this is his version of gardening.....running around like a mad chook.
