Joan's Gardens Challenge #18

Since I haven't been around for awhile....
and since I wanted to mention (and remind you)....
that tomorrow I am participating in a blog hop  at Joan's Gardens....
and the prize is AMAZING.....
 I thought I would post a project I did for Joan's Gardens Challenge #18....
challenge is:
 garden theme ~ sentiment ~ flower and use flower soft or micro beads for the center ~
and last, an embossed background.....
I decided to make a "shower card"...for a baby or a wedding.....
I cut a watering can with my Cricut....
made a flower from my newest Tim Holtz Alterations die "Tattered Flower Garland"
(purchased from Joan's Gardens).....
I used Flower Soft "Raspberry Fizz for the center.....
my embossed background is one of my very newest from Sizzix...
the sentiment is from SU, as well as the cardstock base.....ink is Old Olive
the watering can paper is from the new Dear Lizzy called "Neapolitan"
I also want to share a few of my beautiful garden photos.....
Click on photos for the full affect!!


it's blooming its little head off...
