I now have most of my plants in the ground. My plant sale was on the weekend and it was very successful. All proceeds went back into the garden. The only thing I have left to do is create a little vegetable garden.
This card is for the challenge with Try Stampin' on Tuesday here
The base of this A2 card is Raspberry Ripple layered with Crumb Cake card stock. Down the middle is a strip of DSP from the Print Poetry designer pack. On both long ends I attached a piece of scalloped raspberry Ripple die cut with the Tasteful Trim die. The sentiment was stamped using Black Stazon ink.
On the focal image panel, which is Whisper White, I first stamped a swirl image from Everything Eleanor in Old Olive, stamping off once so the colour wouldn't be so strong. Then I embossed 3 butterflies from the Papillion Potpourri with black embossing powder on Vellum. They were coloured using SU markers and then cut out. They were placed on the image panel using glue dots, and then the panel was matted with Old Olive card stock and adhered to the card using dimensionals.
Some rhinestones on the butterfly provided some much needed bling.
For the flower embellishments, I again embossed 4 flowers from the Everything Eleanor stamp set, using black embossing powder, on vellum paper. These I coloured with markers on the wrong side, and cut 2 of them out. The centers of the other 2 were then cut out and adhered to the flowers using a dimensional. Then I placed a rhinestone in the center of each flower and attached them to the card.
Here's a summary of the stamps/materials used:
Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Papillion Potpourri, One in a million
Inks: Versa Mark, Black Stazon, SU markers (Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso) Old Olive
