Mo's dp2 challenge dt

We have a fab new challenge for you on Mo's challenge blog " how does your garden grow"  and i can tell you by the looks of my card, IN ABUNDANCE!
It would have to on my card since anything i plant in the garden dies, just dont have green fingers, whats a girl gonna do, get a gardener, he he.  Ok so for my card i am using 'BUNCHES" available at Mo's store, colored with copics.  My sentiment is an old one from WOJ that i had clean forgotten i had, the dp is another of those Calambour papers that are no longer available and they are positively beautiful!  Love these!
My flowers are all punched out in various punches and i gave them a vit of a going over in the centres with my copics before i added the pearl centres.

My card has a really simple design, but i think with all these flowers happening all over it, it works!
Seems that everyone loves flowers since the dt all did fabulous work on this challenge so head over to the Challenge blog  and be inspired!
have a great week

  20. I agree that the flowers make the card look amazing. Your image is super cute as well - love how you have colored it, very bright and fun creation all the way! Thanks so much for playing this week at WHOOPSI DAISY:)

  21. Really love the way those flowers pick our the patterned paper & it all ties in. Most of my plants die too - in our previous garden I managed to grow things but not very well here in Brecon, so I heartily sympathize.
    Have a good weekend - we've hopefully got our phone wires mended so broadband funntioning again & I can see posts properly again.
    Have a good weekend.

  24. OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!
    Paola - your card is out of this world!
    Beautiful paper. Beautiful colouring. Beautiful hand made flowers!!!! Look at all the pearls in exactly the right colour for them all. WOW and WOW again.
    I forgot to mention in my first post that I really like your personal stamp on the back of your card. Mo did a great job and aren't you lucky?
    Big hugs, Candy

  25. Paola over the top gorgeous card and oh what beautiful flowers this card has SPRING written all over it.
    Thanks for sharing this beauty with us at Whoopsi Daisy this week.

  26. Hi Paola!
    What a beauty this is!!!WoW!
    I kind of giggle right now because I also have in mind Pat's card for the very same challenge and your two opposite perspectives on "how does your garden grow":)). I must admit they are both gorgeous! I love flowers but always forget to water them and my flower pots always get dried within I must be a complicated person:))
    Now, on to your card: this image is one of my favorite and your coloring is splendid once again. As for those punched flowers they are simply ravishing. You see, that's how I like them- no watering required!
    Great colors too! It simply breathes spring!
    Hugs and have a great week!

  27. So pretty! Love all the flowers! Thank you for sharing with us at Craft Your Passion in our Anything Goes challenge!

  28. I am totally in love with this fabulous creation! Love everything about it! Thanks so much for joining us at THE CRAFTY PAD. Don't forget to check out the awesome prizes up for grabs in our altered CD competition! Hugs, Ali x
