Birthday Garden

I was looking at my flowers in the yard again today and so I decided to create a card with lots of flowers on them. So far my daisies are not blooming but I imagined them to be and in lots more colors then I really have. It is fun to let your imagination go sometimes when you create on paper and I tried to pick some glorious colors for my imaginary garden.


I chose to use the daisy image from the CAS-UAL Fridays stamp set called Truth Is and also the sentiment is from the CAS-UAL Fridays stamp set called Casual Elegance. I stamped all the images with black Versafine ink and colored them in with my Zig water color pens. After all were colored I sponged on some light blue to look like a sky background.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge
Mod Squad Blog Challenge

Also I took some more photos of my flowers that are in bloom now. First up is my double red peonies which always bloom later then the rest. I think it is because they are more in the shade and therefore bloom later and do not get very many buds on. This year I only had four on the plant.

I also took some photos of my tiger lilies. I only have a few of them and they are the orange colored ones. But I still think they are pretty.

Well, that is it for me. You have a great evening.

God bless, Verna

Your flowers are so beautiful. My peonies are just starting to bloom. They are that soft pink color, and I love them. But yours are just spectacular. Also spectacular is your card. I am all about color, and your card does the trick for me for sure. It's plain 'ole gorgeous!!!

LOVE your field of beautiful and colorful wild flowers! FANTASTIC! That's a really pretty stamp and I love the way you colored them, so very pretty! WOW! I am impressed with your peonies! I have one small bunch, transplanted them a couple of weeks ago--I know they hate that! But I do have one big bud coming on strong--I am thankful! lol Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Mod Squad Challenge Donna, Challenge Host.
