Garden Party for July 15

Its Tuesday (for a little while longer anyway) - Garden Party time, where a photo from the "inspiration show box" is used to make a card.

Here is the photo from last week--->

And, we have a winner of the $5 coupon from Odd Bird Planet!! Laura played along - you can see her lovely card HERE. Its so cute I can't stand it - wait till you see!

Laura - I'll be in touch with your coupon code to get your free goodies!

Well, here is my take on the inspiration photo. I used Flower Garland S from Odd bird Planet (designed by yours truly - yay).

I embossed it in white on black and then colored the flowers and leaves with opaque pink and green Souffle pens. It still needed something, so I went over it with a Quickie Glue Pen (love those!) and added pink and green glitter. I added glitter to the first pink matte too.

The background texture was made with a Fiskars embossing plate in my Wizard. I added some Faux stitching with a white gel pen (love those too).

This is where I usually post next week's photo - but the sun went down (way before I was ready) and I don't want to try to take the picture with bad lighting (I'm challenged enough as it is). So I will post it tomorrow!

I have some very exciting news coming (its about a kind of marker, starts with a "C"...........).

Have I ever mentioned that I stink at keeping secrets........... Have a great night....

Your card is gorgeous. That stamp is perfect for the GP inspiration.

Wow - thanks for the 5er! you know I'll find some way to use it.

Hmm begins with C... does the word rhyme with shmopic?
