CCCB Week#15 - Garden Mail

Ros has set her very first challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog this week and what a fantastic job she's done,you can take a look at all her wonderful creations here.The challenge is called 'Garden Mail' and she's used a gorgeous photo from A Creative Mint for inspiration,you can use any colour from this photo and you must include something to do with mail.

Here's my card for the challenge:


The postcard paper was from the Shabby Chic paper pad I found at the bottom of my drawers the other day (I told you you'd be seeing more of it) and the green dotty DSP is from SU. The stamp is from from Crafty Individuals and I used Dusty Concord Distress Ink on the edge of the stamped image and all the papers.
This will be the last CCCB challenge I can do for three weeks as I'm off on my summer holidays even though I've got lots to do I really wanted to do this weeks challenge as I'm sure I couldn't go four weeks without joining in.
I've had a great day out today that I'd like to share with you,Paige and I went on the Severn Valley Steam Railway with Libby and the kids and met up with Rach in Bridgenorth,a quaint little market town. We sat in the Castle Grounds and had a fish and chip lunch,the kids had a good run around and climbed some trees.Lastly we had a look around all the lovely little gift shops in the town,a perfect day out for the summer holidays.
