I'd rather be in the garden...

Today I'm sharing another card made with an adorable Sarah Kay image.  I love these colors together!!

The papers are from the "Promises Collection" at Nitwit Collections.  The set has gorgeous papers and elements to work with!!  I hand punched two different styles and sizes of flowers from card stock, then hand embossed them (I don't actually know what to call what I did to them).  I misted them with water, then used my embossing tools to form them into what you see.  LOL  I had to add some bling to each and every one of them!!  The leaves were punched from card stock with a rock fern punch.  You can see that I used lavender Stickles, but if I can find some blue to match the flowers, then I'm not done adding the Stickles!!  LOL  I also added a small round white paper doily behind the image.  I created the sentiment for this one.

Here's a close up look at the flowers.

Thank you for stopping in to see my cards.  I haven't been putting one up every day, but I try to!!  LOL  Thank you for your comments and encouragement as I learn to make my cards.
