Show me a Garden....

May 21st 2011


My second post for today but I couldn't resist making a card for the new challenge at The Daring Cardmakers Challenge Blog as they have a great new (and different!) challenge this week. The theme for their new challenge is to make a card based on the song "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol! What a great idea and one to make you think!


As you can see I've taken the lyrics "Show me a Garden that's bursting into life" and used this gorgeous new Flower Goddess image from Michelle Perkett Studio - you can purchase designs at her Etsy Store.


I have printed the design on linen look card which looks great coloured with copics and I've cut around the image and also added some stickles to the flowers for a bit of sparkle! I've printed the wording onto the patterned paper and have used a floral stamp top stamp a couple of pink images on the patterned paper and to fionish off have added some punched flowers in complimentary colours and a pink stickle centre.


This is such a beautiful image which would suit so many different occasions! I love the abundance of flowers on the image - fun to colour! And I didn't try to overdo the card with too many embellishments - I wanted to just stick to the simple flower punchies and let it speak for itself!
