Garden Birthday card

Today marks the start of another challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas.
This week the challenge is:
Garden theme

Today, my card features a 3" wheelbarrow from Walk in my Garden, clouds from Serenade, grass from Everyday Paper Dolls and the sun from Celebrate the Occasion! The card base, sun and sentiment banner are all made from handmade wildflower embedded seed paper!! All those layers can be planted to grow a wonderful garden of wildflowers!

I inked all the layers with a sponge and coordinating ink colors. I hand cut the little banner and stamped it with a Scrappy Mom's Stamp. I used Momento black ink... if you are stamping on textured paper like this, it's a great idea to test the ink on a scrap of the paper before you put it on your project.

The center of the little flowers are finished off with some Liquid Pearls in light yellow.

All the layers and embellishments are added with pop dots. I wanted to make sure they can be easily removed so the card base can be planted.

We'd love for you to stop by Die Cuttin' Divas and enter the color challenge!

Beautiful! It's nice to see a cut from an older cartridge. Seems like most of us have abandoned them...

This is perfect for the month of April since it is Earth Day. Do you make this paper or buy it that way?

This is absolutely precious! But I would not want to put it in the ground...I want to put it on my mantle! Great job!
