Softpencil's 2nd Blog Hop

Hi all, hope you are well, I was so chuffed when Elizabeth emailed me and asked if I would take part in her blog hop, as Softpencil was the very first challenge I won way back when I first started blogging.
Anyway welcome to Elizabeth's blog hop celebrating the first year of her characters, the TIntwinies, the first year of Softpencil Studios relaunching and her 10th Aniversary as a professional artist. Elizabeth is also opening her own shop where all her products will be available: digi-stamps, clear stamps, stickers, rub-ons, kits for card making, scrapbooking and paper crafting (they also include her new line of papers) and more products coming soon!
If you have come from Elizabeth's blog
http://softpencilblog.blogspot.com   you have started in the right place.
I have used this cute image 'Growing Flowers in Pots' available here 
Card Twiddlybitz, papers Basic Grey 6 x 6 Sugar Rush

Beautiful ribbon from Crafty ribbons with a closer look at the button flowers and butterflies


Had these garden buttons in my stash for ages, just perfect for this garden scene
