This card was made for Joan's Gardens Card Contest #JG0117.  

The requirements for this contest were:
1)  Opens from the bottom (tent style card)
2)  Use purple, aqua, and light green for colors
3)  Use something from nature for the theme.

           This card actually had me stumped!
          I just couldn't imagine using purple, aqua and light green in the same card!  I have to admit, turquoise is not a favorite color of mine!  A friend of mine had given me some of the Tempting Turquoise cardstock from Stampin Up, and I really had no idea what I was ever going to do with it.  Then I started going thru some of my designer cardstock, and the card just started coming together.  I love the Bo Bunny Candy brads, and it added to the card's Victorian style.   I sure hope you like this card!

Thinking of You!
Welcome to my garden of paper petals. Nothing makes happier than giving a card to someone who treasures it. A friend of mine loves the color purple, so for her birthday, I made her a card with a large purple mum as the center, with light colored purple daisies, some dark purple flowers for depth, and some baby's breath as filler. My friend just loved the card, and has it showcased in a shadow box from Michael's. She couldn't wait to show me what she had done. Imagine my surprise when I walked into her family room, and there on the wall was my card hanging up on the wall. It looks beautiful! I hope you all enjoy it!

More to come ......

I am very new at this blog business, and it has taken me much longer than I anticipated to post my information, so please bear with me, as this "garden" is a definite work in progress!
