Spring Strawberries-2nd make for BTC&G "In the Garden" challenge

June is flying by and its time to blog my 2nd make for  this month's the By the Cute and Girly challenge.  The design team were lucky to receive a package of gorgeous doilys from Poppy's cabin and a choice of images from Spesch stamps.  I used both in this garden party invitation.
The  image is "Spring Strawberries" from Spesch stamps and I've coloured the white Poppy's cabin doily with a green inkpad and used a small part of another doily for the fence.  The flower is made from hessian spread with PVA glue to strengthen it, then coloured with glimmer mists, let dry and cut up with the TH Tattered flowers die.  A lot of dirty fingers after that bit of work!
There is still plenty of time, over 3 weeks, to get creating and enter your crafty makes for the "In the Garden" challenge.  Lots of prizes to be won ie gift vouchers from Simon Says Stamp and Joanna Sheen, a selection of goodies including doilys from Poppy's Cabin, digi images from Spesch Designer Stamps and Guest designer places.....
This card/invitation suits the Digital Tuesday "In the Garden/Outdoors" challenge.
