Time for a spot of gardening

Good afternoon - well May is almost upon and us and summer is on it's way! We have started planting out our yard with flower tubs and vegetables - we have so much grass that it needs color out there.

Today's card is my final make for my Guest Design Team member over at 2 Paper Divas and it a great gardening scene


Garden Joy was my favorite to color I loved using delicate colors and the image is almost dreamlike.

Once colored I used a circle die to cut the image out. I then matted it onto a blue  trellis circle die-cut. I used the same blue as a mat on my card having first decorated opposing edges with a lacy punch.
I then added the gorgeous design paper which has delicate flowers all over it. After placing my image I die cut a butterfly to coordinate and used some of my mulberry roses (spiraling the stems of the small ones) to balance the design.
