Make My Monday week 54

Well it's lovely going away for long weekends but it shortens my crafty week  and then It's all a bit of a rush and I'm posting cards everyday!!
The continuing theme over at MMM is still June and Associated Events and this week Jacqueline wants to see RED WHITE/CREAM and GREEN to celebrate the start of Wimbledon.
I was a bit stumped for inspiration but eventually came up with this:

The main image is a very old Rubbadubbado stamp, stamped with Wild Wasabi and the lily is painted with a water brush and Rose Red. I added some glitter to the shading. The tree inside is a Papermania Oriental stamp as is the bird. The sentiment is an old SeeDee one. The dark card is actually green coredination card although it looks very dark in the photo.
I'd like to enter this for the Fashionable Stamping challenge this week which is 'nature', thanks to Lynne for telling me about it:)

Thanks for taking the time to visit I hope to return the favour:)
