An Urban Garden Thank You!


Good Sunday morning everyone! It is a gorgeous day here but it looks as if a cold front is moving in that could possibly bring snow! Yikes! I certainly hope not! I may like snow, but I do not like it in August! Anyway, this is going to be a quick post because I am getting ready to go to our church potluck. I am just waiting for my casserole to finish baking! Anyway, this card is one I made yesterday for Beate's Weekend Sketch challenge. I just LOVE this new Urban Garden dsp. I am not sure I can say that enough! Once I saw this piece in there with the LONG stemmed daisies I just knew I had to use it as my image. The colors in it are so clean and elegant too so I pulled the grays and the baja breeze to make my card. The card base is going gray and the tag is basic gray. I embossed the sentiment using my white embossing powder. The sentiment is from the new Upsy Daisy set. I then tied the Baja Breeze ribbon around the card and stuck the image over it using dimensionals. The tag was then cut out and attatched to the ribbon using using some elastic cording. Basically I love how this card turned out and I do not think the picture does it justice! I love the simplicity of it and have already decided that this card will be going to a dear friend of mine! Well, that's all I have for today! Thank goodness tomorrow is a holiday because I have a lot to catch up on. I am hoping to find time to stamp too! Until then, have a fantastic Sunday!
