Urban Garden

Today I guess you can see I'm showcasing the Urban Garden dsp. I love, love love the colors in the pack! Oh and the prints too, they are gorgeous!!! I was working on swap designs and these were a few other cards I came up with. Yes, I am teasing you girls again with the actual card-for that you'll have to wait! This first one has turned out to be a favorite of mine. I was inspired by Beate's weekend sketch challenge. Did you know she has returned from her blogcation? Yeah! Check out this sketch and give it a try. I say I was inspired by her sketch because as you can see, I didn't follow it exactly (having the computer upstairs and wanting to use my wide oval punch contributed to the deviation). The card is a 4 1/4 square card. I used the cherry blossom image from Embrace life for my background and then let the dsp take center stage. I stamped my favorite sentiment on kiwi cs and punched that off with my wide oval punch. I accented the card with striped kiwi grosgrain ribbon and a baja felt flower from the Flower Fusion too kit. I had to use one of my filigree brads (they are an amazing accent, but I am feeling the need to hoard them). This second card uses many of the same elements and all the same colors. I left off the large circle and went with scallop edge punch to show off the dsp this time. I used the Inspired by Nature set in the background and stamped the sentiment on a piece of the dsp, bringing in another subtle pattern. I hope you love the colors as much as I do. If you don't' have the dsp pack yet, still go for a similar look just use the colors. Hope your week is starting out great! Mine is. As much as I hate getting up early, I feel good getting up and being able to walk and shower all by 9am thanks to our new school schedule! Hugs,
