Hi everyone!
Is it just me or are we ready for Spring yet?   I keep peeking around in my garden - looking for signs of life, and while things are definitely waking up - there isn't nearly enough green out there to suit me.    So the next best thing was to make my own flowers!   Granted, you have to wait until a little later in the season for sunflowers - but whatever - I wanted flowers so I made some.

Everything for this card was cut on my Cricut using the Walk In My Garden cartridge.   All these images are cute enough on their own, but of course I had to jazz them up a little.   After cutting everything out I used my chalks to add some depth to the leaves, the centers of the flowers and the edges of the watering can.   Then I used my stylus to add some texture to the flower petals, and I also popped up some of the flowers and leaves with foam tape.

And of course I had to finish the inside of the card with another sunflower.  (I can't stand it when the inside of a card is naked).   All the background papers are K&Co. and everything else is just scraps of card stock.

Thanks for stopping by!   I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. What a beautiful project . I love everythign about it especially how you have done the inside to coordinate xx

  2. This is just so clever! I love the flowers in the watering can. I have this cartridge and I am going to have to use it! Thanks for the beautiful inspiration.

  3. Your card says "smile" and that was exactly what I was doing when your card popped up on my screen. That is a really warm, happy and beautiful card!

    I am looking for life in my garden too. I live in Norway and allthough we have had lots and lots of snow it is melting fast now, so today I bough some narcissus bulbs that almost was in bloom and planted outside my door to brighten up my day and everyone elses that come by. Have a great weekend!

  4. Oh such a fabulous project. Love the colours you've used and the details also. Hugs Michele x
