Charming Gardeners

Good Monday Morning!
Donna Phelan here again with another card to share with you!

Even though this card has some gorgeous flowers and a lovely gardening sentiment, I thought a Black and White palette would still let you see all the beauty this garden has to offer.  I used the Spellbinders dies; Fanciful Lattice and Labels 4 to create my base and my sentiment die cut using White card stock.  Ink in Black Licorice.


I die cut the beautiful Cherry Blossom Branch by Cheery Lynn twice, once in White and again in Black.  I snipped off the White blossoms and layered on to the Black die cuts with 3 dimensionals,  flipping up the centers as I went along to add a bit more depth.  Then I topped them with flat Pearl Adhesives.   I love how they frame my sentiment.  Sheer Black Ribbon, to tie it all together.

I just adore this sentiment!!!
