Secret Garden

Here's another entry for the Moxie Fab World's Botanical challenge. Another easy one; this time I used part of the wallpaper from my "girlie" room at home, some gorgeous pink and cream cabbage roses.  Again I used the beautiful frame stamp (here it makes me think of an old iron gate, with the roses peaking out), and added a sentiment that seems to go with the feel of the card, and a felt die-cut rose and seam binding.  I think this gives a kind of "Secret Garden" feel, do you think so?:


supplies: pink card, piece of wallpaper border, K&Company Watercolor Bouquet paper (green), Hero Arts S5324 Simple Frame, CL156 Treasure the moments, versafine onyx black ink, DieNamics large rolled rose die, pink felt, seam binding dyed with antique linen


I'd also like to enter this into Verve Stamps: July Diva challenge, to show our hoarded papers and to showcase a sentiment.

A "Secret Garden" feel for sure, Lin! This is just so pretty! Love that wallpaper! What a fab idea to use it on your card and the seam binding and felt rose finish it off perfectly!

This really is like a walk in the park, Lin! Great garden colors and I love that frame, too. Your felt flower is wonderful - I have the mini dies and have been enjoying making them. This all comes together so beautifully!
