What thoughts does your mind conjure up when you think of a Secret Garden? I think of drifting through paths of beautiful flowers and floral trees and bushes as I daydream and push the stresses of life into the background. I hear Irish music that carries me from place to place within the Secret Garden. I enjoy beautiful butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, and other forms of nature as the aroma of many floral scents rush past my nostrils. I sit on a bench, laying my head back and watching the sunshine peeking down through the tree branches as I drift off into a dream of floating from flower to flower.
Then I hear, “Bevvverrrly”! I quickly awake and realize I’m in my crafting room creating a beautiful card with the Stampin Up Secret Garden Stamp Set. Gee, I like my daydream! (LOL) Here is the card I developed during this daydream.
I tend to be attracted to pink or pinkish flowers. My gardens have basically floral bushes of various sorts that bloom in shades of pink. I venture to guess that is what controlled my creation as I developed this card with pinkish flowers.
Yes, I know that the floral design I used from the Tea for Two DSP is supposed to be Calypso Coral in color. However, I just don’t see it. When I place a piece of Calypso Carol Card Stock next to the flowers in this floral design, I am NOT convinced that the color is Calypso Coral. It lends itself more toward a pinkish color. If you disagree, please feel free to set me straight!
This picture is the inside of the card. The sentiment, Wishing You A Day As Perfect As YOU Are, is from the Stampin Up Vintage Verses Stamp Set.
