Garden Swing

Morning Folks!
My goodness August is whizzing past and it's already time for my second post for Ready Teddy go!
This month our new challenge is 
along with a bear of course!!
I've made a tent card using a very sweet LOTV image which has been cut out and mounted on acetate to make her a bit sturdier. The aperture was cut with a nestie, the other dies are all memory box, except for the Itty Bitty banners Stampin Up die which goes with the sentiment. The papers are a mixture of First edition and a digi paper from Bearly Mine I think (?) 
The roses are from Wild Orchid crafts,  I had forgotten I'd even got them until I was hunting for the acetate and came across them. A stroke of luck really as they are a good match for the papers!!

Thanks for looking today and for any comments you leave!
