Secret Garden Friendship

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog.  It was a great weekend here. Hope you enjoyed yours as well. On Saturday, I went to a rubber stamp show in Pittsburgh.

Lots of great ideas being demoed and lots of new stuff was available. I picked up a few new Cheery Lynn Designs dies.

I also bought the new Envelope Board by We R Memory Keepers. I was up until 1:00 am making envelopes from my stash of designer paper (lol). I love this piece of equipment. Now I will have a matching envelope for my card. And it's a great way to use up my paper collection.  

Onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #435 on Splitcoaststampers.
Becky was our hostess and she chose a soft color trio with baked brown sugar, crisp cantaloupe and wisteria wonder.

I used the Stampin-Up set “secret garden” for my background stamping in crisp cantaloupe and wisteria wonder. On my baked brown sugar panel, I used the Cutlebug embossing folder “stylized flowers”. The small rectangle panel I used the Stampin-Up set “language of friendship” and stamped in brown sugar.

I stamped one of the flowers from secret garden in wisteria wonder for the corner element. To complete my card I used the Stampin-Up ribbon punch and the MS butterfly punch and added some pearls.

My layout is the MojoMonday 302 sketch.

Well that's it for me for today. So until next time.........God bless.
