How does your garden grow?

Hello Dies R Us Friends!
Darlene here with an inspiration card for you today!
Well it's planting, gardening, mowing time of year again and with the past couple of weeks being spent outdoors taking care of all the prep work ... it seems to have flowed over into my crafting life as well!


With all the amazing dies available at our Dies R Us Store, you can create a fun 'scene' card in no time at all ... as I have done today!
My background paper/journal note/banner are from the Graphic45 'Time to Flourish' 8x8 paper pad. And here's a list of the dies used on this fun card:
Cheery Lynn Designs - Butterflies Flying Among the Vines Mesh Border ... I colored the butterflies with a Spectrum Noir GB3 alcohol marker.
Cheery Lynn Designs - Small Exotic Butterflies
Memory Box - Blushing Bouquet   (sponged ink onto the flowers while still in the die)
Spellbinder D'Lites - Blossoms Two
Impression Obsession -  Wheelbarrow
Impression Obsession - Roosters & Chickens
 PoppyStamps - Fence #827 (not presently available at the store)
 ** but the I/O Picket Fence is very similar


As I mentioned, after die cutting the Memory Box 'Blushing Bouquet' from white paper, I simply used what ink happened to be remaining on a few of my sponge daubers to add some color to the flowers. Such an easy and fun way to add a bit of color to your die cuts!
 I also 'popped up' my Rooster & Hen for a little dimension.

Well I have a busy week ahead so I'd best get moving!
Please be sure to come back tomorrow (and each week day) to be inspired by my amazingly talented team mates.  And, don't forget to come join in our new challenge at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog ... current theme is LOVE BIRDS (use a bird on your project).  Hope to see you there!

Till next time . . .
