In The Garden

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. I want to share a card I made using a recent stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle -- Geraniums 519. I love this pretty stamp set. This set is great to use for so many occasions. I have not had this Spellbinders Gilded gate 2 die for long and I was happy to use it because it was perfect to go with this set.

I used sticker paper on card stock and added Cloud Nine velvet glitter GM2002 to it. I then ran it through an embossing folder to add texture to the background.  I cut the gate using Mirror Gold card stock.

I love the saying inside.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a fabulous day!

I love the way you've used the gates (I've often thought of buying this die, but have managed to resist so far ... but I'd still like it - lol!) Thanks for sharing your lovely card for the Sweet Pea Stampers 'anything goes' challenge - hope to see you again soon, Hazel, DT x

Your "Golden Gate" is perfect for these lovely flowers. And the sentiment was made for your card.
