Lucy in pink

I've got no idea where I got the little card with this quote on:

"Thank you", said Lucy, "I will take them home and give them some water. Then I will plant them in my garden."

I think it was among a bag of ephemera I got a long time ago. It had been in my bits and bobs box for ages, along with the piece of acetate with swirls that I stuck over it. The card blank was run though my eBosser using an embossing folder and then brushed with tattered rose distress ink The colouring on the image was done with a copic.

Orange and green

I don't use much orange in crafting, but for this card have used an orange card blank on to which I've matted a piece of orange c'oredination card embossed with a butterfly folder and sanded gentle. The flowers are some that I've had for some time and the sentiment is a Creata textured rub on.
