Dottie's World Challenge

It's a fab challenge at Dottie's World this week; we have to make a card/project inspired by a garden. Well it just so happens that I was doing some gardening this morning before I made this card (I'm writing this the day before - I ain't an early riser!LOL) and I was cleaning out my fish pond. This card is therefore inspired by my fish pond.
I've used Water Lilly from the Pixie Chick # 2 download set and placed her onto a section of the riverside background which is in the same set. The great thing about the digital backgrounds is that you don't have to use the whole thing, you can enlarge the section that you want to use like I have here. The lilies around the edge are also copied and pasted from the background to create a foreground embellishment.

I've used clusters of seed beads and some glitter in the centre of each flower and I've also added some acrylic dewdrops for the droplet effect.

Thanks for looking.
