Garden Party for October 21

gpoct21photo Its Tuesday - time for another Garden Party - where a clipping from the inspiration shoe box is used as inspiration for a card.  If you remember, this was the picture from last week. 

This picture was sent to me by Debbie.  And she also participated in the challenge.  You have to see her awesome card.  Just click HERE.  Its ok, I'll wait......................

Beautiful huh?

 

 

gpoct21card Well, here is my attempt.  It did not come out exactly like the vision in my head though.  I embossed Swirl Background on water color paper and did a water color wash with teal at one end and yellow green at the other, blending in the middle. 

Then I just added the Expressions clear set sentiment by embossing it with some sparkly EP I had in my stash.  I added a ribbon.  The oval and scalloped oval are made with Nestibility dies.

I guess this one was all about the colors for me - they are colors I really like.  I'm just happy my Tuesday Garden party was actually posed on Tuesday this week!
