See what I mean... I really LOVE Crumb Cake but it was the combination of Cajun Craze with Cherry Cobbler together that was ... well... challenging!
I made this for a dear friend that just lost her husband to let her know she'll always be in my heart. They both loved to garden so I dug out my "Garden from the Heart" set which was in a previous mini catty.
I started with a Crumb Cake CS base and matted a piece of Cherry Cobbler CS. I stamped the drying foliage in Cajun Craze and the hat and small sentiment in Crumb Cake.
I colored the flower stems in Old Olive and flower buds in Cherry Cobbler. It really needed something so I cut some Cherry Cobbler polka dotted DSP to make the ribbon on the hat stand out and finished it off with a pretty pearl.
I also stamped a few butterflies in Crumb Cake, and the large sentiment in Cherry Cobbler; both from the SAB set "So Happy For You". (I really love the font in this set).
I finished it off buy wrapping some crumb cake colored twine around the fold and threading a needle to sew around the drying bundles and tied a knot to hold the ends.
The inside sentiment is from "Thanks for Caring" that is in the current Occasions mini and stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White. (What DON'T I like in that new mini!). I added the garden glove stamp colored in with Old Olive and Cajun Craze, then added a few more butterflies in Crumb Cake to give a touch of the front. That's it... Done!
I'm so glad I was able to get this card done for the challenge, as I'll be sooooooooo busy this coming week, there will be little, if any, time for stamping... bummer!
