Greenhouse Garden...

good to be back....sorry I have been very remiss in blogging this week, but not been too well with this viral infection of cough and cold which my darling grandaughters shared with me!
I haven't felt like doing much in the way of card making, but last night I actually got myself together and made 3 cards!! The one below I have made before, but liked it so much did another one!!
I have actually copied it from the SU catalogue on page 43, and it is using the Greenhouse Garden stamp set and En Francais background stamp.

I absolutely loved making this card and this stamp set is one of my favourites of the new ones which have been brought in for this coming year. The set is £22.95 and the ideas are endless!!
I stamped the background using En Francais in Bashful Blue, then stamped flowers and stems using Certainly Celery, Regal Rose and Ballet Blue. I tore the stamped image across the top and inked the edge in the Ballet Blue, then mounted it on to Pretty in Pink CS, and then on to Ballet Blue CS. I mounted the whole bit onto a white card. I stamped a small piece of white card with the En Francais, and a couple of flowers, cut it to size and mounted it on to the pink and then the blue CS. I stamped 2 flowers and cut them out and used a gem brad from the Circle Ice set for the middle of the big one.
I really, really love this card and will do some variations of colours with it
Hope you like!
