Serendipity Stamps Blog Challenge #12 - Victory Garden

It's time for another Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog post...this week we are up to #12 and the theme is Victory Garden.  We were challenged to make a garden themed card without using a strictly floral image.  That is a tough one as Serendipity has so many beautiful flower stamps.  

I ended up choosing a Seed Packet stamp (Daisy Seed Packet) for my main image.  Lots of detail on this stamp and I actually tried coloring it in a variety of colors, but ended up using the first image I made with only brown ink and lots of tea dye stain on the edges.  I think it gives a much more rustic, vintage look to the stamp.  I layered it over some Spellbinder labels and used a couple of red rhinestones for the flower centers.  I have been making myself tie a lot of bows these days (to use up the tons of ribbon I have been hoarding) and added a pretty stick pin for just a little more sparkle.  

Why not play along with our Victory Garden challenge?  You can win $20 off your next Serendipity stamp order if you are the lucky random draw winner.  Just make a card using any of the Serendipity stamps or dies that remind you of the Victory Garden theme.  Here is a link for all the details!

This is such a pretty card. Vintage and rustic, and with so many wonderful details, too. I like the little bit of bling you put on the flowers, and your double matting over the gingham is just beautiful.

I love your pretty vintage inspired card! I love how detailed serendipity stamps are and I too often leave the images uncolored! Love how you paired it with red and your bow is so beautiful! A gorgeous card!

Serendipity may have beautiful stamps but your card is beautiful Cathy! Love the colours you chose and your lovely layers.
