CR84FN 34

It is that time of the month again.  Remember that for the summer we are doing biweekly color challenges at CR84FN.   You are going to love these colors.

 

I used my new PTI set called Garden Variety.  I have to admit that I wasn't sure I wanted this set when it first came out.  I was not very fond of the odd shaped die and seed pack image that was in this set, but I love everything else about it so I went ahead and ordered it anyway.  What do you think?  



Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI/ Rustic Cream and Kraft
DP: My Minds Eye
Stamps: PT/ Garden Variety
Ink: Memento/ Rich Cocoa, Cottage Ivy, Cantalope,  Pink Geranium (Martha Stewart)
Ribbon: Offray
Lace: On the botton~Spare Parts/Hobby Lobby brand,  On the watering can/Prima
Button and Twine: PTI


The rest of the design team have some fabulous creations waiting for you.  Take a look.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Oh my goodness, Heather, it's stunning! I adore this card. It's funny, too - I haven't ordered that set yet, because the only thing I am *really* wanting is the odd-shaped die and seed packet stamp, LOL! Next time we should get together and split these types of sets. :D Gorgeous cards, I've been having fun going back through your posts, so inspirational.

Heather this is just lovely. I think the set great. I am not a gardener - so the set is as close to the garden I'll ever get. Love the lace on the watering can. Very lovely.

Gorgeous card Heather. Love the lovely images, the colors... the piece of trim is perfect on the can. :o)

Heather said...

Love your card! I need to play with my Garden Variety set!

Dani said...

Oh my! This is just beautiful!

Ann said...

I absolutely agree! I really didn't like the shape of the seed packet frame and definitely didn't like the die.... but I'm a keen gardener and loved the other images in the set. So I did buy it (without the die). Still haven't used the frame but placing it on an angle seems to make the shape more pleasing somehow Heather. I've been very happy with my projects using the other stamps and your GORGEOUS card has inspired me to try out that frame!

Mona L. Pendleton said...
