Garden Picks

Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. I spent most of yesterday afternoon working on cards for my sale  basket out in Dresden, so thought I would share one of them with you. 

I used a Flourish set called  Garden Picks  for my card today.  I must say Flourishes is one of my go to stamp companies for all my 'nature related' needs.  I just love the variety of flowers they have and they are all so real to life looking.  See for yourself:

I started by stamping the image on white cardstock from PTI using black memento ink.  What I love about this set is that you have your choice of 3 different floral arrangements, you just stamp the jar and then insert the flowers you want!.

I cut the image out using a rectangle s/binder die, then layered  it onto a piece of cream c/s cut using Labels 23 s/binder die.

DP is from MME - Miss Caroline - Fiddlesticks. I used the flip side (mauve polka dot) for the strip along the bottom. Martha Stewart sea shell border punched was used on the edge.

Finished off with some lace, mauve seam binding ribbon (Flourishes), and some pearls.  I think I will put a Mother's Day verse inside this one.

Thanks for stopping by, have yourself a wonderful day.
Snow and rain in the forecast for today - YUCK!!!

This is a beautiful set. I don't have it, but I love it. Gorgeous card, and wonderful job with the coloring. Especially love how natural it all looks.
