Hello, Diane here with you today
with my card for this weeks challenge
"Fancy Pearls".

I created a fun garden scene!
I loved the tiny butterflies on the background paper I saw
as it reminds me so much of my own garden in the summer
full of butterflies.
This pack is full of soft and subtle designs.

No garden is complete without a bench, 
to rest your weary bones on after a day of gardening,
cut from Luminized Curious Metallic 92 # card stock. 

Behind the bench I tucked a birdhouse using
Three little birdies were added using
Impression Obsession Small bird Set.

The flowers are Blooming Violet by Memory Box.
Yellow pearls were added to the flower centers,
which are actually White Pearls, colored with a yellow marker.

My own garden usually has a cat or two roaming around in it,
so to make the card complete I added a cat from
Impression Obsession die set.

Thanks for visiting with me...!!!

AWESOME! I totally agree with Ros ... your green thumb has certainly extended onto your card creations and they are just as perfectly beautiful as your outside flower gardens! What an adorable springtime scene you've created here! GREAT JOB!

There's just so much to love here, Diane! First of all, your kitty looks very Siamese with the way you sponged it. Amazing how that little something is so effective. The butterfly paper and flowers and birds are so pretty and I LOVE the bench! Would love one just like that for my garden where I hope to spend lots of time this summer!
