Happy Colors

This is my post at the Dies R Us inspiration blog today.
Make sure and scroll down to see
a few more pictures of my Spring garden flowers!
Flowers make me so happy, do they you?
I love buying new ones, as when I drive I can see
them waving at me from the back seat...
I know they are "happy" to be coming home with me..LOL!!

Hello and Happy Thursday to you!!
My card today is called "Happy Colors".
I named it that as the colors just make me "HAPPY"!

I cut a Cheery Lynn Designs Pinwheel Doily from white card stock.
It comes with an "angel wing"...
but I didn't use it this time.
If you are not sure what an angel wing is,
it's a "solid" cut of the doily to place underneath.

I stenciled Memory Box Florina stencil with Persimmon chalk ink.
Then I placed a circle die on using 
Memory Box Open Studio Stitched Circle Layers.

The flower was made with Sue Wilson Finishing Touches Open Petals.
The paper is Ken Oliver Watercolored Memories Paper.

I finished with a few flying butterflies and a stamped sentiment!

Make sure and visit the blog Monday thru Friday to see all the
inspiration the DT is fabulous!

 A few flowers I took on Memorial Day.

My newest Iris I purchased last year called
Avalon Sunset.
I was so excited to see it in bloom this year!

A bit of front garden.
This used to be a shade garden
until a storm took the tree down!
I had to dig up a massive amount of shade plants and move them!

One of my many, many poppies.

My garden helper Kitty Witty.

Those colors are delish! I have orange, yellow, and white patio dahlias this year and they're blooming very prettily! Love how closely planted your garden is. All those flowers mingling around each other. So happy and fun! Your apricot iris is gorgeous! Can't wait to see more!
