A Garden Party

Linda’s got a new Catered Crop challenge for us this week!  Here are the details…
What’s growing in your garden? Flowers? Vegetables? Herbs? Weeds!? There’s just something so therapeutic about getting your hands dirty. For this challenge show us anything that might grow in a garden.
  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Link up and link often, but be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, June 7.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.
  • Check back with us on June 8 to see if you’ve won an opportunity to be a guest designer.

Now, I do not do any gardening!  My husband and I have a deal… he tends to things on the outside, I tend to things on the inside!  So, if he grows the veggies, I’ll cook/can/freeze them once they come inside.  But getting dirt under my fingernails…. no way!  LOL  BUT, I’m perfectly happy to create a garden on a card front, so here’s what I did for the challenge…
Catered Crop Garden Party
I reached for my very favorite LJD Splendid Sunflower stamps and Die-Namics to create my card.  The sunflower was stamped with the luscious new Lemon Drop Hybrid Ink from MFT… is that not gorgeous and rich?  Then, using a Y35 Copic marker I added some shading to the flower petals.  The leaf was stamped with Jellybean Green Hybrid Ink, and the flower center was stamped with Kraft and Hot Fudge Hybrid inks..  The layout was inspired by the Deconstructed Sketch #152 for this week.  The papers are from Fancy Pants.
Be sure to stop over at the Catered Crop blog for all the challenge details, and play along!
Thank you for visiting me today!
