Inspired by Kath




Kath posted a card on her blog this morning that I immediately fell in love with and this is my take on it.  I loved that she overstamped her flowers with various designs; I followed suit and also used her color choices.  Why mess with perfection?  Her card really made me smile, so I thought this sentiment was perfect.  The background is an excerpt from The Secret Garden, courtesy of Lucy.

Supplies: Hero Arts stamps CL322 Artistic Flowers, CG118 Stripes Pattern, S5101 Raindrop Background, S5213 Dots and Flowers, CL267 Card Messages, Vintage Photo, Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint distress inks, various buttons, yarn
