Create A Scene - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
Seeing lots of Christmas Cards appearing on blogs has made me think I really need to knuckle down & make a start on mine! When I began crafting I thought people were bonkers making Christmas cards in the Summer but obviously experience has taught me the need for this, & I love creating Christmas cards anyway so today I'm making a start!

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
Create A Scene!
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog

Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.
Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

 This week my lovely teamies & I are featuring some fabulous
Newton's Nook
    goodies on our cards. You don't have to use them to enter our challenge but we'd love to see them if you do.

I thought I'd try something different this week & created a card which is all monochrome except for the flowers & leaves. I've have stamped & masked several of the images from the Newton Nook's Garden Whimsy stamp set to create a cute garden scene.
I've started to list individual copics in my Inlinkz at the end of my post so you will be able to find my copic colours in there from now on.  As I've used mainly grey's & you may not be able to distinguish which are which from my photos the cute characters & plant pots have all been coloured in cool greys, & the fence has been coloured with toner greys.

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous
