How Does Your Garden Grow? BBTB2 Challenge

It's Monday so that means it is time for a BBTB2 challenge!  Our talented design team sister Julia has yet another  fun challenge for us this week.  She has challenged us to make a project with the theme "Garden".  Well I really wanted to do a scrapbook layout of my flowers, but I ran out of time soooo...I chose to do a card instead.  It didn't turn out the way I had envisioned it, but it is what it is now. lol  I guess some ya' like and some not so much. I used the card feature in Freshly Picked and the sentiment is from there too.  I welded the sentiment into the open window on my Gypsy then cut the sentiment again and glued it to the welded one on the card base.  I took pink and green scraps and put behind the tulips to give them color.  For the inside I a scrap piece of double sided paper for the mat behind the sentiment on the front of the card.  Clear as mud, right?!  I put a mat on the right side of my card and then using My Pink Stamper stamps, stamped the butterfly and the sentiment.  I used a little Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo around my card base.  There you have it, simple, plain but half way cute.  lol  Please come on over the BBTB2 and share a project that you make with the theme "Garden", love seeing all your creations!

Very cute! that sentiment would make a fab layout too, as you said but it's wonderful for your sweet card as well. xxD

We had much the same idea with our DT cards this week. We both have tulips and the same sentiment, though done in different ways. How funny, I didn't even realize there was a card feature on that cartridge. Good to know for the future.
