Now, on to the card. When I was told the theme for the week is ORGANIC, I began thinking of what direction I should go. Should I use something organic to make the card, or should I make the card about something organic? And of course, a garden came to mind. So that took my thoughts to the very FIRST garden, EDEN. Nothing is more organic than that. No pesticides, or pollutants... I cannot imagine how beautiful it must have been.
The card base is ivory card stock. The two layers of printed paper are from DCWV Garden Party. I used an EK border punch to create the border on the top layer. The little boy planting is from the A CHILD'S YEAR cartridge. He is cut on pastel yellow card stock and shadowed on a melon print card stock. Then inked around the edges with a melon ink pad. I then embossed a pastel green small rectangle with the swirls and birds folder in the Cuttlebug. Then went over it with a couple of shades of green ink pads. I just used the computer to create the sentiment. It says "Time Began In A Garden". It too was inked with the same two green ink pads. The flowers were cut using the A WALK THROUGH MY GARDEN cartridge. The paper for the flowers is also from DCWV. I added glitter glue to the flowers of various shades to match the paper.
There are two different ribbons on the card. I first attached a pale yellow ribbon and then paced a layer of whispy green wired ribbon on top. Both of the ribbons came from the $1.00 bin at Michael's. Then I tied the bow with just the green ribbon ribbon. And for a little extra, I added small tag that says "Beautiful" that I got in a package of eight assorted, from JoAnn's. It too was in the $1.00 bin! The little tag was attached with a flower brad from Recollections.
I think the card turned out to be very cheerful and pretty. Therefore, I am very pleased. Again, thank you Sheri, for a fun challenge.
