Planting a Garden with the Control Freaks

The Freaky theme this month is Plant a Garden, using any flowers or plants. It should be fun to see everyone's "green thumbs" this month.  If you landed here from Melissa's blog, welcome! There are five of us gardening today.

You just know I had to go with flowers, didn't you? This theme gave me the opportunity to ink up the new Darling Details set, and play with the awesome dies that coordinate. I love eyelet lace, and these frame dies make the perfect delicate surrounding on a card.

I went with bold colors for the first card, using Berry Burst and Calypso Coral as the main colors. 😮 This is a little out of my comfort zone, but I like the way it turned out!

The background is Bright & Beautiful 6x6 DSP, the Happy Birthday is from Biggest Wish, and I added a few 2023-2025 In Color Dots to bling it up a bit.

The second card was easy-peasy since the only stamping involved was the greeting (Copper Clay). The beautiful daisies pattern is found in the Fresh as a Daisy DSP pack. 

The DSP was framed with the large eyelet frame and adhered to a Copper Clay card base to match the daisy centers. I unraveled some Boho Blue Textured Ribbon and used just a few threads to make the bow. I thought the daisies needed something more delicate. The greeting tag is from the Nested Essentials Dies.

Up next is Bree, at Craft-somnia Momma. Take a look at what she grew!!!
