OTWC #53 and My Garden


Here is a card that I created for challenge #53, over at Off The Wall Craftiness.  I have not gotten to do Kim's challenge for quite some time, but the colors in her inspiration pic just moved me this week!  I have been a bit stuck on these colors lately.

Here is her inspiration photo.

I would also like to include her color swatches for you, just in case you have time to play along.  You can find the details here.

My card is a base of Soft Sand, Pure Luxury cs from Gina K. Designs.  The designer papers are from Diecuts With A View.  I have these stitched paper pieces that are from Prima.  They were a gift.  I layered a turquoise Prima in the center, and added a K&Co Grand Adhesion to the center.  My sentiment is from Theresa Momber's latest stamp set called Follow Your Dreams.  I stamped it on an label punch from SU!.  Buttons in soft blue and green were used as my embellishments.  I thought this made a pretty Graduation card.


Next, I would like to share with you a photo of my veggie garden.  As you can see, we are loaded with leafy lettuce right now.  As long as it stays cool, we can keep cutting and it will keep coming.  Get too hot and it will go to seed.  We do have a few flowers on the tomatoes, but everything else is still small.  Remember, May 15 is the first safe date for planting delicate plants here in  PA, so we actually cheated a wee bit by planting on Mother's Day

Have a wonderful Sunday, and happy stamping!

Your card is great, that flower is so pretty with its different layers. I am drooling over your garden, I wish I could have something like that, but here in TX we have small lawns, so I will dream as I look at your graden.
