I think I am liking this idea of participating in a weekly challenge since it MAKES me break away from what I have already cookin’ to just craft from my heart without it being under the confines of a “must do”project (even though I love crafting no matter what – right now I am up to my elbows in Hello Kitty party makin’ stuff for my almost 4-year-old).
Here is what I came up for the Challenge Me Monday #99 challenge from Fantabulous Cricut and the for the first time to participate in Die Cuttin’ Diva’s Challenge # 54 . I made this with someone in mind that will fit perfectly to who they are and what they have a true passion in doing . . . gardening! She is the type of person that can literally slap a piece off a piece of a plant in the ground and then step on it and walk away and it grows like nothing anyone has ever seen. She possesses the sixth sense of being a true green thumb. I can’t wait to give her this card, because everything that she plants blooms right where it was planted!
Thanks for sharing a piece of ” having fun with my crafty thumb for a green thumb” pie with me!

Oh I so hear you! I’m up to my eyebrows in Elmo stuff right now—-I’ve got so many little things to finish up I don’t have time for any challenges and I’m soooo looking forward to some once I’m done!! This is a terrific card!! One of my favorites of yours—I love the ribbon flowers, the little silver tools & twine you added—fantastic details! Some other good challenge blogs are: Celebrate the Occasion, Birthday Sundaes and Peachy Keen Stamps!!!
Another lovely card – love your color choices and all of the little details (including the glossy accents). The embossing really sets off your cuts, and the entire card is wonderful! I am sure the recipient will adore it.
OMGosh! I stinking love how you used the rosettes. Thanks for playing along with us at FCCB.
Be blessed, Beckie

Thank you so much and thank you for the challenge!
Very beautiful card. Love all the detail. No green thumb here but I know your friend will love this card.
thank you Tammy! I have to say, that green thumb is an awesome gift that I wish my backyard could reap from!
I agree with Missy – I think this is my favorite of yours too! The funny thing is last week I was just going thru my bling/accent drawer & I’ve had those same flowers in pink for a year at least & I’ve just never come up with anything to use them on. I’m so glad I have you – my genius friend! I just love this idea of clustering them! Thanks for the inspiration & for sharing it!
Thanks Diana! I was setting up a craft for my little one’s craft for school and pulled those out and thought….I need to use these sometime. They came in handy for this project!
