Double D, Flowers Galore!

Good Morning!

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog. 

Check out this Inspirational Tile to get your creative juices flowing!  Gorgeous, right???

Here's what I came up with!  I know, I have A LOT going on here!  But I love it!
I created my wood grain background first, picking up on the natural look of that wood crate in the Inspirational Photo.....which I then carried on to my lovely wood barrel.  Natural and Rustic, a combo that can't be beat!  I used several beautiful stamp sets from Gina K Designs to create this card (which, by the way, was extremely FUN); Beyond Baskets, Birthday Blessings, Fill It With Flowers (boy did I ever!) and Folk Filigree.  Inks in Always Artichoke, Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, and Wisteria Wonder.  I just kept stamping flowers wherever I wanted.  Fantastic!

I framed this all in using the Papertrey Ink, Shakers & Sprinkles dies set.  I also added a few 3D flowers and vines using the Poppy Stamps die set, Large Madison Window, this comes with a flower box die and everything you need to fill it with.  Each flower has a seed bead center.   My sentiment is stamped in Brutus Monroe Raven Black ink and then heat embossed with Clear Powder onto a Vellum strip.  Copic Markers.  Adhesive Pearls.
Only if gardening were this easy!  I find the two equally rewarding though!
Please come on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!  
You'll be glad you did as there is always a fabulous prize up for grabs!

Hope you have a pretty day!
