Garden Tag

 
Morning.  I think one of my most inspiring places just has to be out in the garden.  The colours, textures and beauty just make me want to make a card.  I also find so much inspiration at Splicoast Stampers as you know and the challenge today got my creative juices flowing. 
I began by cutting a tag using a tag die from My Favourite Things.  I inked up the flower stamp from the Stampin Up set called Spring Garden by colouring on the stamp with Memento markers.  I then sprayed with water and stamped.  While the tag dried, I stamped the sentiment....it is an oldie but still one of my favs.  I added the twine to the tag then sewed it onto my card front.
 
I am also adding my card to these challenges:
 
Curtain Call- BIRTHDAY BASH
 
 
 
Tag You're It- INSPIRED BY VIRGINIA
 
 
 
YNS- INSPIRATION PHOTO
 
 
 
 
 
The Mixed Media Challenge- TOUCH OF NATURE 
 
 
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
 
Supplies:  stamps- SU, PSX/ Memento markers/ Memento bl/ twine/ tag die MFT/ sewing machine

Hollyhocks are so sentimental to me; I remember them in my grandfather's garden. But I just cannot get them to look pretty here in OH - the bugs just decimate the leaves! So I love seeing them on cards - yours is so bright and crisp, Karen!
