Garden Party

Hi Everyone!
Great "Ephemera" Tags last week.
 I think we were all glad to use some of our collections!
Thank you for your kind comments, they are much appreciated.
For my Garden Party tag I have  made a very summery tag.
 I found the beautiful image of a hedge gazebo on this week's
Graphics Fairy. It is from a French gardening book c 1859. This was
collaged onto a gelli printed background. The image of the 
lady and little girl are borrowed from Georges Seurat's painting:
A Sunday Afternoon at the Island of la Grande Jatte.
I have added garden decor in the
 form of floral fabrics, stick on butterflies, and a very
handsome peacock paper cut out.
