Fuschias in the garden

Good afternoon everyone.
Thank you for the lovely comments and the clicks thanking for the last freebie.
Boy what a change in our weather.
For almost a week we had beautiful sunshine and today it's back to cold mists and pouring rain.
I was freezing until I put the heating on.
Never thought I would have to do that near the middle of June.

I have created this card for this weeks challenge at AllSorts, the theme being In The Garden.
Not that I would want to go out there at the moment LOL
I embossed the card using my cuttlebug.
Marriane dies used Double Frame LR0141 and Floral 3 LR0107
The stamp image is a freebie from Just Inklined coloured with pencils and added to a die cut circle from a sheet of plenty kitchen roll (loved the embossing on it lol) and inked the edges using a pink inkpad.
Added 3 strips of pink ribbon to the card then glued everything on using tacky glue.
Thank you for looking :)
