1/14 Garden From the Heart

This is a card that I made for Quality Control Swappers. I used the new paper pack from the Occasions Mini called Sweet Pea. I thought some of the oranges in there made a nice match with Dusty Durango which is what I used for the card base. The next layer is Basic Gray cut at 5 1/4" x 4". The strips of designer series paper are all 1" wide. The shorter strips are 2 3/4" and the longer strips are 4". The center piece is 2 7/8"x 1 5/8". I used watercolor paper for the center piece and stamped my hat image with StazOn Jet Black. I used a Dusty Durango marker to ink up just the words "from my heart" and a Stamp-a-ma-jig to get perfect placement. My image is watercolored with an Aqua-Painter.

Do you like the teeny tiny butterfly fluttering about the hat? That is a new Stampin'Up exclusive from Sizzix called Beautiful Wings. It's an embosslit die that cuts and embosses all at the same time. There are four butterflies on this one die and this is the very smallest of the four. I attached the butterfly with a mini glue dot.

Have a wonderful day . . . so glad you could stop by my blog. I appreciate you!
