My July Reveal for Meg's Garden #1

Hi everyone!!!  Welcome to my blog, so nice to have you here.  I do hope you are having a lovely day.  The weather here in Adelaide is gorgeous today.  We've had beautiful sunshine for the first time in weeks.  Still quite cool but at least it's not so dull and dreary today. 
I'd like to share Part 1 of my July DT Post for Meg's Garden.  It is a step card made with the lovely 'Correspondence' Papers designed by Kerry-Jean Watson.  These papers are absolutely gorgeous and so suited to all kinds of projects from dreamy feminine to vintage  and even masculine styles.  This card definitely falls into the 'feminine' category.

No cutting and trimming here!!  I just ripped the papers to size and then curled the edges a bit.  Added a little machine stitching for some interest and also did a little background work with a stencil and some Distress Ink but then I covered it up again.  I think you can still see a little peek every now and then though.

The sweet little butterfly is from Meg's Garden's More Butterflies Transparency Sheet .  The dodo wire and  the small white rose and rosebud are also from Meg's Shop.  I'll leave a list of Meg's Products at the bottom of this page.

This card actually came about because I wanted to use that beautiful grey/blue primula .. don't you just love the colour??  I know I do ... it is absolutely stunning in real life!   Love the gorgeous heirloom flower too, these two blooms go so well together.   Added the circle behind the cluster ( after doing some stamping with Distress Ink) for some added interest and tore some tissue like paper into strips and curled them to fill the space.

The inside was also decorated with the papers.  I used the Mini Paper Pack for this card, they are a perfect size for cards and smaller projects.

And here is my card standing up!!!

I do hope you like it and that I have inspired you today!!
