In the Garden

I'm so excited that you've been able to stop by today!

It's Sunday, which means there's another new challenge beginning at Pile it On!

No Patterned or Designer Paper

I have to admit that this was a tough one for me.  I don't usually make a card without any designer paper.  So, a challenge it was.  

I had the most beautiful digi to play with from our current sponsor.

My image is called "Tender Thoughts".  I just find it to be a peaceful and elegant image.  A beautiful young girl surrounded by budding flowers and butterflies.  It reminds me of spring!
When I saw this image I immediately had the words to a favorite hymn pop into my head...

"I come to the garden alone,
when the dew is still on the roses."

It then dawned on me that my daughter has a friend being baptized next month and thought I'd use this image to design that card.

Here's a look...

I printed out the image onto a floral frame with my Silhouette Cameo.   I then set about to water coloring it and matting it with the front portion of the floral frame.  I decided that I would do a white on white background with a navy mat behind that.  I decided to dry emboss the white mat with a floral embossing floral.  I then added some beaded swirls, a few white flowers and 2 white butterflies.  I colored the butterflies with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.  I then popped them up with pop up dots to give the card some dimension.

It's your turn now!  Push that designer paper off to the side on your craft table and get creative without it!  It's actually not so hard!  LOL
