Garden From the Heart

Up early today, figured I might as well do a little stamping! I will regret staying up by this afternoon, but I probably wouldn't have been able to sleep after having been up for over an hour getting Ryan off to his Robotics meet.

Anyway, here is the card I did this morning for the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge .

I've been wanting to try this new set from the Occasions Mini, Garden from the Heart. I'm also in the mood for Spring so I chose some lighter colors. Card base is Certainly celery. I used the new Perfect Polka Dots Impressions folder in the Big Shot for the background and sponged the edge lightly with Regal Rose. A Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon is attached around the center with Filigree brads on the edge. I used Certainly Celery brads in the center instead of the silver ones. The hat image was stamped with Black Stazon in the center of another piece of Whisper White. I colored with my markers in Regal Rose, Almost Amethyst & Certainly Celery. I stamped the glove & shovel image on a scrap piece of Whisper White, colored and cut it out. Its attached on the lower corner with a dimensional. The saying is from the SAB set, Whimsical Words and was stamped in Regal Rose, punched with the large oval punch & layered onto a Certainly Celery scallop punch.

Now, off to the rest of the day, which I hope includes MORE stamping!
