I'd pick you! So true isn't it!
Back home in Florida there is an adorable little girl turning 6 and she is having a Garden Party for her birthday, so as I was unpacking things I came across this much neglected set called Green Thumb by PTI....so instead of finishing up the task of unpacking and sorting (no fun), I got distracted with playing with paper. (fun) Doesn't take much!!
I started off with a light green card base I found in my scrap pile along with this pattern paper from TAC. I remembered that the CR84FN challenge colors this week were Celery, Lavender and Gray, so all I needed to do was add the gray in there somewhere. Looked around the scapbox and found an already cut piece, but it was boring, so I created my own background with some of the flowers from the Green Thumb set using VersaMark ink. This gives it a nice subtle background! I laid the stamps on my stamping block and created a repeat pattern.
Next I stamped the watering can in Momento London Fog and fussy cut it out. Stamp the stems from the set and I decided to use some rosebuds I had and I loved how it gave the card dimension. After adding the sentiment and buttons, I wanted a more rustic feel so I distressed all the edges and inked the card base in Craft White Ink by Stampin' UP! I added a ribbon that was laying on my craft table still looking for a home (trying to organize a new home is not fun), and that was it!
Here are the pretty colors I played with:
I am also playing along with Jules Crafty Snippet challenge 30! Goodness I have a ton of scraps to use, and I am working on it, but not sure the pile will ever go down! :-)
