A Day in the Garden...

Actually, it's going to be several days in the garden doing heavy, manual labor.  It is time for the big fall cleanup and it can't be avoided anymore, so I'm pulling from my card archives today as I won't be able to get into the craft room until this evening.  Hopefully.  If I can even move.  It's been awhile since I've done any heavy labor (last spring, in fact), so I'm pretty sure I'll be stiff and sore.

I miss my craft room already...


For this card I used SU's Bordering on Romance and colored it using the inkpad/brush method and added a bit of glitter to the insides of the flowers for a little sparkle.  The CS is SU's Neutrals (and Brights for the rose) DSP Stack, plus Early Espresso and watercolor paper.

The edge was cut and embossed with SU's Textured Impressions Embossing Folders Adorning Accents, and the inside striped piece is the reverse side of the piece that was cut off of the top layer.

A banner, flourish, Tiny Tag, bow, pearls and sort-of rose finish things off.  I learned how to do this type of flower (part rose, part daisy) here.

Hope you have a wonderful Saturday, and Happy Crafting!!
