#9 Challenge Joan's Garden

This week the challenge at Joan's Garden is to create a Garden Theme. I chose a Dandelion Folder to start my project. Once the dandelions come it's spring and time to garden.  We have piles of snow but it is now raining and they will not last long. We all cross our fingers so no more snowstorms come. Here's my card:

I colored the Dandelion plastic folder with Dried Marigold dye ink, inserted a sheet of white paper and put it through my Big Shot machine. The folder is from Darice at Crafter's Companion.
The flower pots, shovel, small butterfly and photo corners are all punches. Also, the two green round edged pieces of cardstock (sticking out at the center of the card) are punched out with a word punch.
The Gate and Tag are dies from Impression Obsession. The Watering Can is a stamp from IO.
The Grass is a Sizzix die.
Spring is Sprung is a stamp from Savvy.
I also added a mini green brad, a paper flower with a mini orange brad and strings for the tag.
For more challenge cards and to see Joan's products go here  .
