At Joan's Gardens Challenge #12

The Challenge this week is to make a card:  use a yellow, orange  and green theme, use some kind of container, fill it with flowers, include products that are sold at Joan's Gardens
This Easel Stand-up card uses Spellbinders Labels #18 (S4-310).  They are edged in  Tim Holtz Distressed Inks and layered over Tim Holt's Alterations  Embossing Textrues Fades Folders  (Sizzix 657846 ) The Honeycomb was brayered and them embossed with Kaleidacolor Desert Heat Oranges and Yellows inks. Flowers were punched from scrap paper using both Studio G and McGill (Mini Petals for Hydrangea) punches centered with Stickles (Platinum) .  The adorable Digi Stamp is by Wendy Hall of Digital Delights by Louby Lou  called Flower Power  Rosie colored with Tim Holtz Distress Markers on Ranger Specialty Paper (that I do not like!).  These pens work better for me on high quality watercolor paper worked very wet.  The basket on the inside of the card is a digital clip art design drawn by Tracy Barnes, and textured with 3D Crystal Lacquer filled with the punched flowers.  Inside the baskets and in the element clusters are clippings from Cheery Lynn Designs, Borders Flourishes and Edgers (B148) which is the Holly Flourish. The Sentiment stamp is from SU-Vintages Verses.  Inserted decorative paper is by Pink Paislee Nature Sanctuary 00440.The inside of the card opens to show butterflies and an orange rose on clear acetate and orange paper traced from Rosie's hat, with room for a note for the recipient.
