How Does Your Garden Grow

I made this card for the current Allsorts 'How does your garden grow' challenge and followed the current sketch at Sketch Saturday.  I'm also entering Crafting with Dragonflies 'Dragonfly or Butterfly and Crafty Friends 'Inspired by a Song' (I've been inspired by English Country Garden by Jimmie Rodgers).

Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'English Charm' Art Pad
Die: Tattered Lace 'Mini Butterfly'
Card: Purple matt
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Country Meadow'

I cut a square of floral paper, layered it onto purple card and attached it to the card blank.  A strip of square paper was attached down the centre.  I trimmed one of the Art Pad images, layered it onto purple card and attached it to the centre.  To finish I die-cut a mini butterfly and attached it to the top of the image.
