Summertime and the Garden is Blooming

I love all the pretty flowers in the gardens over the summer. Anywhere you travel, you can pass many houses with beautiful flowers growing. Each one perfect in natures beauty. My card today is part of the Stampin’ Up! Only Challenge, (SUOC), whose theme this time is Summer.

I used the new Daisy Lane stamp set, and two coordinating punches to create my flowers. I stamped some in Terracotta Tile, and some in Mango Melody, and punched them all out with the Medium Daisy and Daisy punches. I used one of each colour to create my flowers.

I stamped my sentiment from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set in Terracotta Tile, and cut it out with an oval die from the Stitched Shapes set. A Pearlized Doily made a perfect accent for my flower garden! I thought about adding some Gold Faceted Gems to the centers of my flowers, but I know I’m going to snail mail this card, so I coloured them with my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend marker, and painted some Wink of Stella on them to add a little sparkle. The backdrop is Terracotta Tile card stock embossed with the Subtle embossing folder, and I used Mango Melody for the card base.
