Garden Party for August 29

Hello everyone!

Its Tuesday - Garden Party Day, where a magazine clipping from the "Inspiration Shoebox" is used as inspiration for a card.

Here is the inspiration photo from last week:

And I'm thrilled to say Laura played along! And she teamed up with her daughter to make the card - how fun is that? You can see Laura's awesome card HERE. Her daughter colored the images. Great job huh?




So here is mine. I tried to give mine some "quilt" texture using Fiskars embossing plates in my Wizard. The images are all from Odd Bird Planet (yes, the planet includes critters other than birds - bunches of them in fact!).

Here are the Copic Markers I used. I know - I need to focus. And not just with picture taking either.




So here is next week's photo.... My! How.... ummmm.... colorful??


If you would like to play along, just post a comment with a link to your card and I'll highlight you in the summary next week.

Thanks for stopping by!

Ugh!! Guess who didn't find time to play along again! Sorry!!!

I love your take....I had something similar in my brain. Too bad I didn't get it done...it would have been fun to see how similar they would have turned out!!

Hi! I love this clipping! I think I'm going to have to do a layout also! I love pink and green together for CHRISTmas, so I made a CHRISTmas in July card! Here it is: http://tanyaroberts.blogspot.com/
