Less is More Card week 21 number 2

And now for card number 2. I love this week's challenge which is a sketch and I've got ideas spinning round in my head. Must be because I've had a break from card making. On my little foray into the city of Leicester yesterday (when Iwas really doing wedding shopping!) I found these lovely little charms in The Works. It's a much bigger store than the one in town here and Libbie practically had to drag me out.
I couldn't resist making this card for a very keen gardener and as his wife is a crafter I expect the charms will be 'recycled' and used again! Base card is lime green pearl card cut in a 5inch (12.5cm) square. The band and little squares on the inside are from Papermania Secret Garden paper pack and the apertures/squares cut with a Martha Stewart punch. Sentiment is a brown rub on by Pebbles Inc.that I've had for ages.
Right, the sun's come out and today is supposed to be our 'heatwave' so I'm off to sit and gaze at the result of my labours in the garden. Bye for now.

These are such lovely little garden charms
