Everything Grows

Happy New Year - I can't believe we are at the beginning of a new year already and the start of a new challenge! This month the design team will be using a variety of older High Hopes stamps - it will be something different every day! Fun right?! 

Our challenge this month is Anything Goes ....with a twist - well a couple actually   Use purple/blue and a ribbon or button. Such a fun way to start the new year!  I get to use "Gabby" and decided that I wanted to use some bright, fun colours! I am playing along with the challenge twist by using blue and twine (shh don't tell the boss I cheated a little ). 

After colouring up cute Gabby with her watering can, I hand fussy cut her and went around the edges with a black marker. I formed my easel card base and added some bright polka dot paper from Doodlebug. The scene was made with variety of dies - the list is below. The sentiment is stamped and mounted on cardstock and is strategically placed to help as a "stopper" for my easel card. Some twine and gumdrops finish off my card.
