Happy Birthday Sis!

Hi Peeps
Today's card is one that I've made well ahead of time for my sister's birthday in August as I shall be in sunny Spain at the time (HUGE grin!).  

My sister is REALLY into gardening, which sounds a bit weird when you think that she lives on a narrow boat, but some time ago she managed to pursuade the guy who owns the marina where they moor to allow her to look after a little bit of rough ground at the side of the canal.  You should see it now - beautiful flower beds, lawn, greenhouse and shed!!  It's a real improvement on what it used to be I can tell you.  Anyway, bearing this in mind I once again decided to make her a garden based card, and this is the result.  The image is a freebie that I downloaded at some point from Deedledeedoodles.  It's very simple, but I rather liked it.  It was coloured with Copics, and I edged it with distress ink.  The papers are digis, but off the top of my head I can't remember who by, so if you want to know drop me an email, and I'll find out for you.  I made a little ball of garden string to add a bit of texture to the card, and then some ribbon from my stash, and homemade flowers just about complete this one.  As always, I'd love to hear what you think.
