Garden Variety Tuesday at The Greeting Farm

It's Tuesday so that means we have a new Garden Variety Tuesday Challenge over on The Greeting Farm Blog today.  This week our lovely Rosie chose the challenge and she gave us a beautiful photo inspiration to work with ... I love the colors in this picture.

I used an older stamp on my card today.  This cutie is from the Hope & Grace collection and it's retired.  I colored her with copics and colored pencils and added a little pearl to the bow at her neck.  Although I love the colors in this challenge I was a little worried about finding some matching papers ... and then sweet Suzanne pointed out that the Mabel papers by My Mind's Eye were a perfect match.  Fortunately I still had some Mabel paper left in my stash!  I used the die from the Mini Fleurs Clear Stamp set for my flower and added a big button with some twine.  I used the Delicate Words Die for my sentiment.  Be sure to stop by the Greeting Farm Blog to see the gorgeous work by the rest of the DT and to get the challenge details!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita
