A Fun Challenge Card for a Special Green Thumb

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!

  1. 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!!!

  2. 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.

  4. Very beautiful card. Love all the detail. No green thumb here but I know your friend will love this card.

  5. 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!
