Stamps R Us...through the garden gate

Happy Monday and welcome to another Stamps R Us challenge. This week our theme is "through the garden gate" and Heart Song Designs is our sponsor. I'm using the Blooming Stars digi image for my card today that was colored with Copics. I embossed a piece of ruby red dp with the square lattice ef, and added some turquoise card stock to mat the image. The vertical border was done with a MS arch lattice punch, and I added some bakers twine tied off inside of a button. The star blooms on the flowers have blue eyelets in the centers, and I added some pink liquid pearls to them for a little interest. The sentiment was computer generated and done with a word window punch and embellished with a mini butterfly. The final touch was adding stickles to the image butterflies.
I hope you'll find time to play along with our "through the garden" challenge and have some fun. You'll have 2 weeks to finish and post your card, and there's always a generous prize randomly awarded from our sponsor. Click the new Stamps R Us badge button on my sidebar to take you to the other DT members blogs where you'll find some amazing creations to inspire you!
Have a wonderful day!
