Secret Garden

Happy Thursday!

This week has been a long week for me... Glad to be getting to our three day Memorial Day weekend.  The kids are winding down from school so lots of activities going on including their last exams. :)

I snuck in some time to play along in the ColourQ #86 challenge.  My card has mostly brown with hints of the other colors.


I started with the Stampin Up Bingo stamp. Love the size and the image and pulled it out for the background of the card.  I then decided that the sweet kids from the Artistic Outpost Think and Wonder set would look cute in the corner. I added some flourishes from the Artistic Outpost - Serenity plate and birds from B Line Designs to create a secret garden. 

Here is the inspiration photo:



Thanks for stopping by!
