Penny Black Saturday/MDP2

I have made this card for this weeks PBSC the theme is In The Gardenand I thought this image would be perfect!




Instead of matting and layering the DP's I went round the edges with a promarker (yep you guessed it POppY!) to give the effect of layering whilst still keeping the designs showing on the paper.............



This card is my entry for Mo DP" challenge the theme is babies but I think this would make a nice childs/baby rememberance card...



this is the first time I have tried to colour the whole of the background and I feel it turned out quite well for my first attempt.....





Thanks for stopping by...
