PBSC May - Anything Goes (Optional 'Use Patterned Papers')...More Inspiration!

It's the third Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for some more inspiration for this month's Penny Black Saturday Challenge...where the theme is:

'Anything Goes'
'Use Patterned Papers'

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

The image on my card is a cling stamp called 'Garden Visit'. I stamped it on to a snippet of watercolour paper, along with a sentiment from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp, then coloured it using watercolour pencils. I paired it with papers from an old Crate Paper pad called 'Farmhouse'...distressing the edges, and adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
