Blossoms in the Garden

Gardens are on the brain just now.  We are in the middle of having our back garden landscaped.  It's a muddy mess at the moment as the digger has been in to level off our varying slopes.  I'm really excited though to see the finished result. 

So onto my card.  I've followed the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  

I've also used my catalogue for ideas.  On page 97 there are examples of cards using Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper.  The papers are so vibrant, with gorgeous designs, they stand so well on their own.  Like the examples, I've also used Crumb Cake as my base.  I matted a strip of the patterned paper onto Pacific Point.  I love that I can quickly check my ideas catalogue to see the colours that go with my papers.  I punched out a Whisper White blossom using the Blossom Punch.  Then stamped one of the Mixed Bunch In Melon Mambo and punched that out too.  Curled and pinched the petals then added a large Basic Pearl to the centre.  For my sentiment I've mounted it onto a Decorative Label of Pacific Point.  I stamped my sentiment from Petite Pairs in Melon Mambo and punched out using the Large Oval.  A couple of pearls either side finishes it off.  

The Paper Party is well under way.  Why not join in?  Remember during this month you can earn a pack of papers for free when you purchase 3.  Check out the flyer on my side bar.
