Garden Tour 2

First off, I would like to send out a big Thank You to all of you for your kind words, warm welcome and support for my new venture, becoming part of the Papertrey Ink design Team. Today I decided to play along with Mish's second Garden Tour challenge. She has included to gorgeous pictures as inspiration, a sketch inspired by one of Betsy Veldman's beautiful cards (featured in the recent Stamp It! magazine) and a color combo of yellow and gray. Here is what I came up with...
The top panel was stamped with a background (from Background Basics: Diamonds) in Lemon Tart, rounded the bottom corners, wrapped with Lemon Tart Satin Ribbon and punch a circle. The flowers (from With Sympathy) were stamped in Ripe Avocado and Lemon Tart then placed behind the circle punched raised panel.
The sentiment (from Everyday Button Bits) was stamped around the circle and then the flowers were embellished with clear rhinestones.

I have got some fun links for you to check out...

Dawn Woleslagle has started her own new stamp line called Wplus9, the last couple of day's she has been sharing some sneak peeks of her sets. Stop by and check out Love Birds and Funky Foliage.

Courtney Baker has a second stamp set called You're Dandy, coming out on the 6th. So today she is sharing a card featuring her new set, check it out here.

Lastly, my friend Kim has got a few money saving homemade Clip It Up ideas. Check it out here.

Thanks for stopping by today!
