Papertake Weekly - In the garden

Good morning! We made it through Monday, and it's time for a new Papertake Weekly challenge! This week, Dawny's challenge is "in the garden". Dawny says "use anything connected with the garden, or even outdoors. So flowers, birds, trees, etc. etc".  We are sponsored this week by Lilac Lemon Designs. I chose to use one of my new stamps from Magnolia-licious which is from the new Wedding Collection. She's #392 Tilda with Peony. She's colored with Copic markers and then cut out with oval Nestabilities. If you're looking for any of the stamps from the Magnolia Wedding Collection, be sure and visit Magnolia-licious for the best prices and service, along with the largest on line selection in North America!


The sentiment was computer generated and then cut out with Nestabilities. The papers I used are Basic Grey Green At Heart and Bazzil cardstock. The ribbon is May Arts Silk ribbon used with the Bow Easy. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the flowers along the bottom, and the roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


Just an "artsy fartsy" angle in honor of Dawny. LOL! Please be sure and visit Papertake Weekly to see the rest of the awesomely talented design teams creations. And then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! You might get lucky and win a fabulous prize from Lilac Lemon Designs. Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

I'm also entering this card is Wild Orchid Crafts challenge - Say it with flowers!

Love the colors you used for Tilda. Growing up peonies lined our house. I always remember they were always crawling with ants. Peonies and ants go together in my mind. lol Love your flower border punch.
