Picking Flowers

My desire to do any gardening is decreasing each year, but I so enjoy the results of our labor.  It is wonderful to have enough flowers in our flower beds so we can pick them to enjoy in the house and yet still have enough to enjoy outside.  We also enjoy sharing.  Yesterday I filled two vases with Lilacs; one for me and one for someone else who was getting heady with the scent when she came for a visit. Last week it was tulips.  Next week it will by Rhodies.  I can hardly wait for the Peonies.

For this card, I started with the sketch at Sketch Saturday, using one of my new die cuts from MFT.  The image is Bugaboo which I colored with Copics.  The cluster of flowers in the left, lower corner were cut out with a Cuttlebug die.  I used Liquid Pearls in the center of each of the flowers in the cluster and on the image too.
Even with the Washi tapes, something seemed missing - the cardbase was too boring so I stamped tiny flowers with a stamp by SU using Versamark .
