March TIF Finished - "Remember to Stop and Smell the Flowers"

Hope you had a wonderful Easter. I finished my March TIF challenge as you can see above. I've called it "Remember to stop and smell the flowers".

I love observing the small details in the garden and how things grow and change from day to day. Time often feels like it is flying away and I sometimes don't make the time to go out into the garden. This is a reminder to go outside and not to let the small details going on in the garden pass me by.

I have made the flower oversized to emphasise its beauty and to create the impression of being enveloped in its perfume. Also a walk in the garden wouldn't be the same without the company of my beautiful cat "Jazzie".

I used a knitted sari silk background that I showed in a previous post. I had to put some batting and a cotton backing onto the back to make it abit more rigid so it would lie flat when hanging up.
