The Shabby Tea Room Challenge, take 2

Who knew I would love these colors so much!  This is a combination I have never tried before.


For my second entry into The Shabby Tea Room's challenge: In the Garden, I concentrated on the circle design of the inspiration wreath:



I just found Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety and Material Girl mini paper pads, and these colors work perfectly!  With my own addition of cream cardstock and the white doily and heart pearls, I was able to get all of the challenge colors into my card.   I LOVE stamping on printed papers!

Supplies: Hero Arts CL322 Artistic Borders (flowers), CG148 Blossoms (leaf), and LL206 Take Good Care (sentiment), Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety and Material Girl papers, unknown red/cream dotty paper in background, cream cardstock, Versafine onyx black ink, HA heart-shaped pearls, red mettalic decor, unknown pearl cabachon, paper doily
