My first Garden Whimsey card

I have had my eye on this set since it made it's debut in the Fall~Winter Collection, but at that point I was thinking...fall & winter (duh!) Now that I'm at the point of thinking Spring, I had to snatch it up for my collection. However, it's probably not a good thing that I'm already thinking Spring when it's only early February here in Michigan and we were just hit with another snow storm yesterday. I guess I can think Spring all I want, but I just better not look outside!

I chose the nice warm colors of Pumpkin & Pomegranate and paired it up with Olive, because after all...if you're thinking Spring green is a must, right? As you can see I also used a few different backgrounds...Canvas on the bottom, Boho Backgrounds on the top and on the Word Window punched tab, and the coordinating Whimsey wheel on the Olive portion.

For the main image I inked the butterfly in Pumpkin and added Pomegranate around the edges by using the rock'n roll technique. The bold images in this set are perfect for this technique. The strip down the middle was dry embossed using my Crop-a-dile.

Enjoy your day!
