A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #49

It's a colour challenge this week over on A Spoon Full of Sugar, 'Blue & Green'. I'm loving this colour combo at the moment.

I've used D&D's 'Bubble', coloured with watercolour pencils and waterbrush. I've paper pieced the flower and the tummy heart. The papers are all Funky Fairys, the green paper is a sneak peek at the upcoming set 'It's Just So Distressing Vol.5' and the dotty blue paper is from 'Dots Are Distressing Vol.1'. I used nesties for the scalloped ovals, punched flowers from the blue paper and card candy. Scalloped base card from Craftwork Cards. I've doodled some dots around the edge of the base card, green paper, image and corners with a blue Whisper pen.

Wow two cards from me in one day, it's been awhile but I think I'm finally getting more organised. I've been extra busy with some DT work, which I can't post yet I'm afraid.
We've also been quite busy with work outside, we have quite a large woodland area at the end of our garden, which is in desperate need of tidying. Over the past week one of our big old Willow trees sadly had to come down as it was too dangerous, it was finally finished today. Tomorrow they start on clearing up some of the woodland and removing the fallen trees from the water and paths. Hopefully when they've finished we will actually be able to walk through the woods for the first time since we bought the house. Been awful weather today, so not been able to go out and take any pictures of the tree now gone, but below is a picture of the tree as it was, and the other two pictures are of part of the woodland and the trees that have fallen into the water. I'll take pictures over the next few weeks as it's transformed.
