Allsorts 475: In My Garden

Hello everyone, I have officially returned from a family visit to Germany and also spent some wonderful days in the Austrian Alps with my family. Enjoyed some good food, good company and beautiful scenery, but now it's time to get back to daily life here in the States.

Today is the start of a new challenge at Allsorts, the lovely Brenda is our host this week and she picked the theme of "in the garden".
I forgot to ask Brenda if mythical garden creatures could be allowed for this challenge, but knowing that Brenda loves fairies I am confident that they are allowed :)

This cute fairy is a rubber stamp by Lili of the Valley. Unfortunately they discontinued all of their rubber stamps and only carry a fraction of their older images, so I am not sure if this image is still available. She's been heat embossed on Bristol Vellum card stock then colored with my Zig Clean Color markers. The little sentiment is from Penny Black's set Snippets, this time I heat embossed it in white on black card stock. The script background paper is from my box of scraps, probably from Prima Marketing . I distressed the edges and added some May Arts Jute Twine to finish off the card. If you look closely, then you will notice a subtle design on the image panel. That was done with Penny Black's Oscillations Stencil, which is currently available in my Etsy Shop. By the way, all stamps and supplies from my shop will now ship for FREE (US only). Note, I only carry a limited amount of stamps.
