Raspberry Fizz Garden Variety Birthday Card

Today I am sharing a birthday card I made for my sister.  I absolutely love Garden Variety and the cute picket fence die.  I have always loved the color combination of raspberry fizz and lemon tart and used it to make a bright and cheery birthday card.  The raspberry fizz cardstock is stamped with the Impression Obsession Cover a Card stamp called screen.  It gives a wonderful texture to this card.  I stamped the watering can in spring rain ink, added the cute word "Fleurs" and flowers which were dotted with a white ink pen.  In real life, the flowers are very sparkly and both the seed frame and the watering can are popped up with dimensionals.  The picket fence is cut twice and stamped with the IO CAC Woodgrain stamp and the little nail heads colored with a brown fine tip pen.  The sentiment from Tiny Tags in spring rain as is the "bee" from Honey Bees which is fast becoming a signature piece on many of my cards lately.  I think that little bee is perfect for cards using Garden Variety.  For this card I stamped Sister from Women of Life directly onto the vintage cream doily and folded it over the top of the card.  It looks so pretty in person.  I already gave it to my sister and for someone who is not into making cards, she really loved this one.  Thanks for taking a look!

What a beautiful card. I'm sure your sister loved it. I like how you combined so many elements to make an entire scene. Your color choices are great, too. Every time I see a bee on one of your cards, I have to smile. It's like your playing our song.
