Summer Garden Challenge at the Craft-Room

Hi everyone!  It is that time again for a new challenge at the Craft-Room Challenge Blog.  Hazel is challenging us to create something lovely with the theme of "Summer Garden".  I created a card that I really feel embodies that theme.

Just looking at it makes me feel like I am walking through a beautiful English Garden.  I Really love this stamp set from Power Poppy by Marcella Hawley.  She creates the most beautiful botanical images and I highly recommend checking out her site.  I colored the peonies with my Copic Markers and cut it out with the pierced circle Die-namics from MFT.  I have been coveting this patterned paper from Graphic 45 for a while now, it is called Botanical Tea and it is simply gorgeous.  I decided to cut into some of my collection for this occasion since it fits so well.  The ribbon is from Really reasonable Ribbon.  The button is an old one I pulled from my stash.  The sentiment was from the same stamp set and I embossed it with Ranger Detail Gold Embossing Powder. 

I hope you enjoy my inspiration for this challenge and will join in the fun over at the blog.  Make sure to read the challenge rules as we are changing a few things up.  Have a wonderful day!

I also covet Graphic 45's paper - it's difficult to actually use it sometimes!! Love the flower and your coloring is amazing! Christi
