BIC10 Botanical Garden


Today is Beates' "Be inspired" Challenge #10.

This canvas gave me the hardest time - LOL!!!

I wanted to try some different techniques and ideas and nothing really worked.....

So I had to rethink and finally came up with this longer card....I was really inspired by the beautiful colors of the canvas and tried to include them all.

The card measures 3 1/4" x 6 1/2". I started with Whisper White as my base. Then I have used Marigold Morning CS and tore the bottom. The main image is from the wonderful retired "Botanical Garden" Set and I have stamped it in Tempting Turquoise. I have trimmed around the image and left a little white frame to make it stand out a bit.....Both CS's were raised with Stampin Dimensionals.

I have used a 5/8" Chocolate Chip Ribbon to dress the card up and used the sentiment from the "Absolutely Fabulous"Set. To finish it off I have added some small green Rhinestone Brads.
All Products are from Stampin Up!!!

Hope I have inspired you to play along. Please make sure you check everyone elses creation on the Inspiration Team - you know those ladies make gorgeous cards.
You can find the Team on the right hand side of my blog. Have a wonderful day and ~TFL~!!!

I think it is just lovely - I, too, think that just looking at the picture would be a bit challenging. I love how the card is long and incorporates all the colors. TFS!
