Garden Poems Watercolored

I won some blog candy at my friend Benzi's blog.

This is the card I made for her.

Now that she's received it, I thought I'd share it with you.


I stamped the flowers with Memento ink
and watercolored them.

has an ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE.

also has ANYTHING GOES this week.

wants us to choose 3 things from their list.
I've used the items that are in bold print.
ribbon, flowers, lace, pearls, sprays/mists, punched elements or die cut elements, rhinestones, doilies (stamped will work too), dry embossing or scoring

for that snippet of gingham ribbon.


Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

And, what a beauty it is, Bonnie. It's right here on my desk. You do the most beautiful jobs on your cards. My neighbor was here when it arrived and she loved it and said had that stamp. So, that just may be the next card she makes. Thank you again for sending it my way. You're a peach.

Those flowers are delightful, Bonnie, and the font of the sentiment goes with them perfectly.
