CCC #005: In the Garden

It's time for another Catherine and Cathy Create Card Challenge. This month the theme is "In the Garden." Sounds easy, right? Probably like 50% of Stampin' Up's stamps are flowers. But I have to admit I really struggled with this one! I really don't do flowers a lot. And I only have three flower sets. I borrowed the Flower Shop set and the matching Pansy Punch from my upline, but at the time I was planning on trying a pretty unique color challenge from another blog, so I punched all the flowers in those colors, then gave everything back. Then it turned out I just couldn't make those colors work! So I decided to go in a different direction entirely. I mean, there are other things in the garden besides flowers, right? Wanna see what I came up with? :)

Butterflies are in the garden too, right? And my washyard is right next to my garden, so the clothespins seemed fitting when I was trying to figure out how to add a little dimension and interest to the butterfly punches. :)

Super-duper simple card, but a lot of dimension and texture added with the ruffled ribbon, doily, and clothespins. Oh, the mini clothespins are from the Tag a Bag Accessories kit.

So, if you haven't been over to Cathy and Catherine Create yet today, make sure you head over there now! Go check out what the other DT members have created!

Happy Stampin'! :)
