A Secret Garden for You

Good Sunday morning, Friends! It's been a sort of whirlwind of a weekend around here. We picked up Nick early from school on Friday and he got his hair cut then it was off to Denver for a soccer game yesterday. Then we came home right after that and now he has another soccer game this afternoon! Whew! Our schedule looks crazy like this for the next few weeks. But it is nice to get out of town even if it is for just one night. The boys won yesterday so here's hoping they win again! And then I need to spend the rest of the afternoon getting ready for my stamp club tomorrow! Woohoo! 

Today's card was inspired by one I saw on Pintrest. I changed it up quite a bit but that's where the inspiration came from. I took a piece Crumb Cake and rounded the top corners and then used the white StazOn pad to ink the edges of the card stock. This is then adhered to a strip of Print Poetry designer paper that was punched with the scallop edge border punch. I stamped the sentiment from Made for You in black StazOn. Then I tied a piece of Raspberry Ripple stitched satin ribbon around this and adhered it to a card base of Baja Breeze. On the bottom right hand corner of the card base I stamped a flower from Secret Garden in Baja Breeze. Then On a scrap piece of Crumb Cake I stamped another flower in VersaMark and embossed it with white emboss powder. I used Raspberry Ripple ink and a blender pen to color it and then I carefully cut it out with paper snips. I cut two stems from Old Olive using the Secret Garden framelits dies. I added these to the back of the flower and ten popped it up onto the card. The final touch was to added a rhinestone! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
