Aloha Friday Challenge #30 - In the Garden

Happy Aloha Friday!!

Today starts a brand new Aloha Friday challenge at Kitty Bee Designs!

In the Garden

Your project must follow the theme.  This one is definitely easy-peasy.  For more details, head on over to the blog.  This week we're excited to have our challenge sponsored by:

The Bees & I were lucky enough to receive a few images to showcase, please make sure to stop by the challenge blog to see what my teammates came up with.  They are sure to bring a smile to your face and give you tons of inspiration!!  Today I get to show off Sunbell - Precious Wings.  Oh but please be very quiet we don't want to wake her up...

Oh my talk about adorable!!  This image was the perfect one for my card and this challenge theme. This is another baby card and it's exploding with some bright colors!!  I chose yellow, orange, and green as my color palette to go with a summer theme.  The blooms look like she's nestled right in the middle of a garden.  Oh man I stressed about this one for a while.  After much deliberation I ended up taking a bunch more leaves and flowers away.  Now it definitely looks like she's "in the garden".  Here are some pictures...


Using a white pen I added polka dots to the orange flowers and buttons.  It was really nice to use up some older Prima flowers for this card. After everything was glued down I added some water dew drops using my transparent pearlen pen.

The banner is part of the TE Party banner cutting plate.  I ran it through my Cuttlebug with some scrap white paper and trimmed off one of the banners.  I handwrote "Sweet" inside and stamped two daisies with MFT lemon drop ink, I also distressed it a little with some orange ink.  Here's a shot of the inside of the card featuring a couple of baby sentiments from AmyR.

Another close up of the adorable Sunbell and you'll see some of the dew drops created using that awesome pearlen pen.

Well folks it's time for you to share your "In the garden" projects with us.  Make sure to follow the directions posted on the blog, we wouldn't want you to be disqualified. Thanks a lot for dropping by to see my latest project.  Hope to see you playing in our challenge.  Have a great Aloha Friday!!

The bright summer-y colors on your card makes this such a unique and cheerful baby card. Love how you nestled little Sunbell in a bed of die cut leaves and prima flowers... so much attention to detail!
