A Summer Garden

Morning and I am back with my second post for today which is for Crafting From The Heart and the challenge is ATG,we also have a fabulous sponsor-Lunar Girl who gave us some brilliant pre-coloured pages of images to work with.I used Summer Garden and the tags and Bee is from HoneyBee Tags 1,I matted the images onto red cardstock abd only put 3-D foam on the bottom half so the top stands proud of the card just for a different look lol,added a couple of greenery dies and fence/Tattered Lace,Creative Expressions and La-la-Crafts.I am giving this card to my Son and DIL for their 10th anniversary next month.Dianes dad died just before last Christmas leaving them an old run down care home he used to run and was living in,and as he also left some money they were able to convert it into a beautiful 4-bedroom house in it's own grounds and best of all-no mortgage,they moved in at Easter and have just redesigned the neglected garden(their first) with a beautiful flower border and lots of old cottage garden plants for the Bees and Butterflies so my idea was to recreate a border and as my daughter has also bought them a Bee House/hotel for over wintering I thought this card would be perfect-hope they think so too lol.
