A Summer Garden Scene

A white picket fence, pretty climbing roses in full bloom and that soft balmy feel in the air...aahhh, summertime! 
This card features 2 stamps and a die from the Sweetstamps.com store. 

The 2 Sweetstamps stamps I used are "Rose Corner Large" (which I stamped several times to make a whole"bush") and "Vertical Rose Border" (which I placed horizontally at the bottom). The "fence" is a Cheery Lynn Designs die called "Garden Gate". The roses and leaves are colored with Spectrum Noir markers and Memento markers. The background die cut and the small circle are both Spellbinders.
And the little sentiment is from the "Wistful Wishes" set by Clear Dollar Stamps.
Cardstock and ribbon are from my stash.

Here are the challenges I plan to enter this one in:
Cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.com - #92 "Anything Goes"
Cardmaniachallenges.blogspot.com -CMC#26 "Summer Blooms"
Craft-deebowz.blogspot.com - August: "Anything Goes + Handmade Bow"
Liastampz.blogspot.com - #46 "Color Scheme: Pink, Cream, Lt. Green"

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Blessings to you and yours!

I adore that card! Those colors are really pretty and the little picket fence just tops it all off. Kudos!

Just started following you and can't wait to see more of your work. My very first blog is only a week and a half old and I would really appreciate it if you could come by and leave any suggestions. And a follow would be fantastic.


PS. Sorry for the above deletion....still trying to learn to type, apparently. ;o)
