I am STILL drawing inspiration from our recent garden visits - coming to the end of the posts I'd planned now, although if the weather is fine we are planning more garden visits this weekend - so watch this space!
Of course there were roses everywhere, beautiful fragrant ones, and although the only photo I took of them was this pink rose arch, I was very taken with the number of yellow roses in all the gardens. I tend to think of the really fragrant ones as being pink or red, with others having been bred for colour rather than scent, but I was obviously wrong.
And the yellow roses brought to mind this set of papers and die cut decoupage that came as the cover mounted gift with an issue of docrafts magazine last summer. The lace was part of a RAK and the ribbon was salvaged from a bunch of flowers (well, today IS National Upcycling Day!) and as for the paper doiley - it came from a bulk pack I bought in the Chinese cash and carry!!! The butterfly is cut with a Spellbinders die - if you squint really hard you will see there is a second one underneath to give just a glimpse of yellow under the cream wings.
