From the Garden...

Hi all!  Well, it's still raining and gloomy here so I thought I would do some positive thinking and focus on what I would normally be doing this time of year, playing in the garden, weather permitting of course LOL...  So since I can't be out playing in my garden right now, I thought I would color up this adorable garden scene from Flourishes' From the Garden clear set instead and play along with this weeks CR84FN20 color challenge. 8-)

The colors this week are Plum, Lavender and Green... I think my creation should work pretty well for the challenge.  I decided to do another fun little Post it Note Holder similar to the one I made last week, but I taylored  it to the challenge colors.  If you missed last weeks post with the link to the  super easy tutorial by the talented Carolyn Draper of the UK with Stampin' Up, HERE it is again.  Hope you get a chance to try it out, they make great little gifts.

I stamped my Image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Flourishes Classic White and colored it up with my trusty Copics.  I embossed the edges of my sweet little garden scene with  my Score Pal and matted it up with a bit of Hero Arts Foliage Layering Paper.  I cut a small scallop square for my second mat with my Cricut using the Lacy Labels cartridge and then  stamped it using Impression Obsession's Dots Cover a Card stamp with Distress Ink in dusty concord.  I attached all  my layers to my post it note holder, added a green mini pen, ( you can find them @ Staples) and Voila!  Another great little  post it note holder, but this one's From the Garden.  8-)

Hope you all had a great day and hopefully you had some sunshine were you are and got to go out and enjoy it. Thanks so much for visiting!
