From the Garden
On stampTV this week Gina K. challenged us to make a card inspired by the garden. I took this photo of a flower in my sister's garden on my last visit with her in Mississippi. Cut it out and framed it with Nestablities. Base card stock is SU Gable Green; the others are miscellaneous sheets. Stamp in lower corner is from Stampin' Up, Take Three, in Always Artichoke. I used Martha Stewart's border punch Daisy to add a strip along the top of the card. Couldn't see it too well so traced the cutout portions with Always Artichoke. Ribbon came from Michael's and I tied a "cheater bow". Some cards just fall together -- 1,2,3; This was not one of those cards. It behaved like my grandchildren on a bad day!! Don't know how many times I changed papers and positions before finding something that I liked. Hope you enjoy it too!
