Secret Garden at the Cubby Hole

 The challenge set for March by Carol  of Cubby Hole fame is a Secret Garden! most people have entered into the spirit and had a go... the title inspired every one. I'm sure at some stage all the entries will appear on Carols Blog.. see link in my side bar.

I've also entered this into the Gothic Arch Challenge.
Open theme.

Front entry into the lovers secret garden 
I would like to add something a bit more vintage to the flower centres 
I haven't come up with an idea yet! :) 

 some where where lovers can meet... no prying eyes!

She's waiting secretly and patiently for the man of her dreams :))
The gorgeous lady is stamped onto tissue paper, fixed onto the card then gessoed.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Lesley (Crafty Love n Hugs) whose work inspired me and who very kindly sent me the arch templates and included the door furniture. Thank you, Lesley xx

Absolutely gorgeous.

A secret garden of soft colours, beautiful flowers and expectation.
I hope he brings her chocolates and a big bunch of roses. I hope he is not the type to pick your flowers on his way in.

Just beautiful!!
