Make it Mine Monday: Avant Garden

Avant Garden.0117It’s another fun Make it Mine Monday.  This is a great little challenge for me.  This week I didn’t have any cards on hand that I knew I had CASEd so I went to the internet and started searching for a card to copy.

My favorite place to start looking for ideas is Pinterest.  Sheesh!  You can find almost anything there!  I came upon Mary Brown’s card that you see below and decided to go from there.

I really liked the way she grouped the flowers on her card and how she used only one color ccmc440for the flowers but stamped one off so that is where I began my card.

I could have used Real Red like Mary did on her card but after looking over all of my colors I decided on the seldom-used Rose Red for my card and paired it with the also seldom-used Basic Gray.  I’m really liking that color combination!  What do you think?

I went for the smaller 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ size for my card.  I didn’t want to deal with all of the extra white space on the card.  I’m starting to be ok with extra white space but just wasn’t feeling it for this card.

My images are stamped on Shimmery White card stock for some sparkle and when I didn’t think that was sparkly enough I went over my flowers with my Clear Wink of Stella pen.  You just can’t have enough sparkle, can you?  🙂

I’d like to challenge all of you to give Make it Mine Monday.  Ok…you can do it whenever you’d like but I think you should give it a try.  Find a card you like and switch it up.  I’d love to see what you come up with.  Send me both the card you’re copying and the one you came up with.  It will be fun to see what you all do!

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
