Botanical Gardens from Stampin’ Up! – Sketch Challenge Card for #GDP022


Ok so today’s post nearly didn’t happen. I was determined to do the challenge over at Global Design Project for today’s blog post. It’s a sketch challenge and I wanted to make something totally unique etc etc etc buuuut in the end I have gone with Botanical Gardens from Stampin’ Up!. Time is running out and the Bedlam Brothers will soon be tearing out of school at 100mph! I don’t have this set at home, so I cut a few extra flowers and leaves from the supplies for one of the make and takes at our team training on Sunday (more on that later in the week) and I just had the overwhelming urge to use them today! Nothing else would do, for some reason, and so there you have it. I know they have been used on both the design team (Steffi’s card which is stunning) and other challenges and so it’s not unique, but I love the card and I hope you do too!

Botanical Gardens from Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Tracy May #GDP022

I embossed a panel of vellum with the Softly Falling embossing folder and stuck it over a panel of Pool Party. The ribbon (which is lush!!) and the flower are Watermelon Wonder, which makes a stunning colour combination with the Pool Party! Love it – credit goes to my upline Michelle Last for the make and take this came from. I will post the make and take for you tomorrow so you can see for yourself!

I’m kicking myself that I didn’t buy this set! Hmmmm can I feel a sneaky order coming on, I wonder? What do you think? Lol!
