Secret Garden

I have just made this card for my husband's birthday and am entering it into the following challenges:

CWLC 18 Falling For Fall (use fall colours)

Anything Goes 80 Stitching (real or faux)

The floral/stitch background, owl, flowerpot, tag and word stamp are all from a Papermania set called Secret Garden.  I really enjoyed using the stamps which surprised me as I bought them years ago and have only just opened the packet!  I am not a fan of small stamps and thought they would be fiddly to use and possibly not give a clear impression but I am very impressed at how well they have turned out using Versafine and Memento inks.  The papers are Anna Griffin and the brad, twine, flowers, button and feather are all from my stash.  I used glossy accents on the flowerpot rim and owl's front to add a little dimension, plus glitter glue on his eyes.
