Secret Garden

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! The weather sure has been crazy!! At the soccer game Sunday I was really glad to have brought my heavy coat as it was really cold and really windy! The drive home was a little scary when we ran into snow packed roads. Then yesterday it rained all day around here and the temperatures dropped. Thankfully we weren't traveling as the highway was closed due to snow. And today it's more of the same! And wouldn't you know it? Nick has a track meet today! Guess I had better get the heavy winter coat out and I need to go buy a new umbrella. Geesh! But we need the moisture! I did some stamping yesterday but I am wondering when I will be able to take pictures as it is just gray outside! Doesn't make for good lighting. 

Today's card was one I came up with while I was getting ready for my club earlier this month. I was experimenting and came up with this. If you check my blog often you know that I came up with a different card for club using these same colors. Love these colors and I am so excited that Wisteria will be a part of the regular color family!! A piece of Very Vanilla was cut with the Apothecary Accents framelits dies and then stamped with the flower image from Secret Garden in Wisteria Wonder, the leaf image in Lucky Limeade, and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Elegant Eggplant. I adhered this to a piece of Wisteria Wonder that was run through the Big Shot using the Fancy Fan embossing folder. Then I tied a piece of Wisteria Wonder ruffled ribbon around this and adhered it to a piece of Pink Pirouette. I popped this panel up onto a card base of Wisteria Wonder. Then I stamped the solid flower in Pink Pirouette onto Very Vanilla and cut it out with my paper snips. I cut a stem from Lucky Limeade designer paper using the Secret Garden framelits dies. I adhered this to the flower and popped them up onto the card. Then I added a rhinestone to the flower center. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
