How Does Your Garden Grow?

     Thursday and that means another new challenge theme over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge.  This week our theme is that all time favorite, "Anything Goes."  We still have the wonderful Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor and I'm using a delightful garden theme image.  For those of you buried under gray skies and snow storms, I hope this serves as a little pick-me-up for your soul.

I chose to use the sketch from Sketchtanten
and colors from Creative Colors, plus brads and lace.


     I used ProMarkers to color the image and the polka dot papers are from Bo Bunny.  I cut the scalloped piece with a die from Cheery Lynn and both the image and the mat are cut with dies from Spellbinders.  The decorative corner was made by cutting a triangle out of a brown lace doily I had in my stash.

What a beautiful creation NC!! Love the different shades of green along with the pink flowers here! :) You've done an awesome job with the sketch too!! HUGS

We must be on the same page this week. I think your Bo Bunny paper is the same one I used yesterday. I didn't know who mine was made by though. It is so nice to see your lovely spring time flowers while it is very, very cold here in New England. 8° with a wind chill well below zero at the moment. Your flowers have brightened my day. wishing you a grand day.
