DL.ART Thankful Thursday #188 ~ Gardens

Happy Thursday!! It's time for a new Thankful Thursday Challenge at DL.ART and the theme this week is Gardens. If you use the code l01210, Diana will give you 10% off your order at DL.ART!!


For my cards, I created shabby garden cards. The papers are from Craft and You's Rose Garden stack. The base layer was created with Andy Skinner's Mega Crackle technique.


A Prima Persian Lace die was added next. The butterfly in the top corner is a Fiskars Punch, and it was coated with Sparkle N Sprinkle Crystal Ice.


The cherub fountain was left over from a previous shabby garden project and it was perfect for this challenge. It's a Prima Baroque Mould 5, made with air dry clay. I then applied DecoArt Antiquing Cream in Burnt Umber.


Inside the fountain, I added Tu Tu Pink Prills (love them!!) with Finnabair Art Basics 3D Gloss Gel.


And I think these are Third Place Prills (not positive on the color).


Beneath the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, I added Memory Box Tender Leaves and Anja's Leaves from Marianne. This gorgeous crinkle ribbon is Cappuccino ~ Coffee House Bundle #3.


This is my all-time favorite crinkle ribbon - Pink Champagne ~ Vintage Vinyard Bundle. Happy Birthday is from My Creative Time.


I am linking this up in the following challenges:

1) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes
2) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your Garden project...I can't wait to see what you create :)
