"Hi" from the garden

Before I share my card with you I want to share a dream with you.  Not like an, "I aspire to do blank" type of dream, but a sleep (or really fitful sleep) dream.  In this dream, yours truly was The Next American Idol.  After I went through the doors at the end of winning it all, no news crews were there to meet me.  I was running around looking for Arizona's Fox 10 team for my time in the spotlight.  It was all very stressful, but exciting and amazing that I won.  (Chuckle.)  One good thing from the dream was that Jason (my hubby) was very proud of me, and that I think meant more than exposure I missed from the media.  Oi!  That's what I get for watching my DVR late late into the night.  Crazy dreams.  Now on to my card. . .

I just adore the Crafty Secrets brand Garden Creative Scraps that I got in my DT kit from Mystic Paper this month.  For this card, I layered several of them and stamped "Hi" right over the most muted pattern.  Then I used Stickles to add some sparkle to the blue words and the background of the garden tools.

Have you tried the Tim Holtz Distress Stickles?  They are amazing because they add a great touch, without being too Bling Bling.  Not that this girl doesn't love the shiny things in life.  I wanted this card to stay a bit more earthy and unisex.  I made the envelope from a sheet of the Domestic Goddess  paper.  This kit was a bit out of my frilly dilly box, and oh so fun!  Be sure to check out the blogs of my fellow team members, Sheri and Jenna to see their projects; or even better, visit Mystic to see them in person.

With all my heart, thanks for reading,

I saw this one at the store. Love the round design and the collage effect. Great work!
