Check out these Paper Smooches goodies

First off, I have a card that is featured on the CardMaker Magazine web site.  It is a card that is in the newest issue.  Be sure to take a peek.
Next a couple cards using one of the newest sets of stamps by Paper Smooches
 First off, Paper Smooches is the sponsor for this entire week at Card Positioning Systems sketch blog and so I want to show off the card I created with the PERKY PLANTS set.  I colored everything with Copic markers.
 That green background print is a digital paper from a set at JessicaSprague.com.  The set includes the woodgrain design in several colors. I want to use them all!!! And, I printed it on white Core'dinations cardstock so that it has a great slight texture. 
I created a little curled piece from black cardstock so my little bee looked like it was flying around the flowers. 
 I wanted to use this particular stamp set for more then one card so I used the Play Date Cafe color challenge. 
The photo that was used to show the colors includes a little bouquet of poppies and I just love how paper thin and delicate they are.  I used a piece of vellum type paper to look like the white flower.  I embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder and then cut it in a circle shape with the Kreaxions circle cutter.  That was matted with another color of that same digital woodgrain paper. 
I gave the watering can a coat of Aleene's Paper Glaze for a glass-like look.
And for a couple photos...
 These are in my garden this week! Both were just planted earlier this year so it is excited to see flowers on them already. 
Fuchias are one of my most favorite plants to have in my yard, I have three new plants that I am watching. 

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
