Plum Garden

Yippee! My Garden Silhouettes arrived today! I was a little late ordering mine, right at the deadline, actually, because I just couldn't make up my mind. This was my favorite of all the level 2 & 3 sets but did I want to spend the money for it or save my $$$ for more in the new catty? Well, I caved and I am so happy that I did. This delicate little cherry blossom limb was so fun to play with! I colored the image in Stampin' Write markers then I stamped a second image just paying attention to the flowers which were cut out, sponged with Van Dyke Brown, enhanced with my Sakura Clear Stardust pen and adhered over the flat flowers with Pop Up Glue Dots. The Perfect Plum panel was stamped with Fine Lace BG using Perfect Plum classic ink. It is difficult to see in the picture but the end of this panel has been pierced using an Onare template. The Pale Plum panel was wheeled with Rough Texture in Pale Plum then the corners were cut with the Ticket Corner punch. I placed a piece of shimmery olive ribbon around the edge of the Perfect Plum panel then tied both plum panels together with a brown & white striped ribbon (I thought that particular style of ribbon added nice contrast to the very soft look of this card.) Well, I should be in bed. Long day ahead. Take care!
