Sunny Secret Garden

I had some play time over the weekend. ;)  I  made a couple of cards using the Secret Garden set and the challenges are about to finish up.  So it will be a multi-posting day.

You may want to put on your sunglasses!

This is for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  Here's the sketch.

I get to play at Pixie's Crafty Workshop this week as the flower and leaves are from snippets.  The ribbon was too.

This is similar to a card we did in the Stamp Stack last month.  I had some extra pieces and  had a good time using them up.  In fact I may have used up most of the green snippets in the box.

The flowers was stamped 3 times with Whisper White ink on Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Then I embossed with white embossing powder.  I sponged some more DD ink on the flowers and cut them out.  The bottom layer is the whole flower, then I cut the centers out of the other 2 flowers. The layers are built up with dimensionals.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Secret Garden, Fabulous Florets
Ink:  Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, SU Marker (Pumpkin Pie)
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, DSP
Other:  Square Lattice EF, Daffodil Delight Seam Binding

I'll be back with another card in a bit.  Keep out your sunglasses!

Thanks for stopping by.

A lovely splash of sunshine Bonnie! Love the design, and such a great idea to treble stamp and layer the Secret Garden flower maa I pinch that idea sometime please? :) If you run out of green snippets I can send you some of mine, wink.

Hugs, Di xx
