Creating a 'Scene' ...

Today I'm still playing with ink, masking and stamps to create SCENIC creations.  This card was made with three challenges in mind ...
Craft A Scene - In the Garden
Wild Orchid #55 - Round in Circles

I really enjoy trying to create backgrounds for the fabulous images that are out there and I figure if I keep trying, SOME DAY I'll get good at it!  LOL!!

Here are the items used in making this card:
Paper - white cardstock, SU 2 sided design paper
Stamps - Crafty Secrets 'Garden Girls SL21', Stampscapes 'Leafy Branch - 277F'
Inks - Versafine black, Tim Holtz 'broken china', Momento 'cantaloup, bamboo leaves', Colorbox 'rose coral' 
Accessories - Wild Orchid flowers, Sizzix 656064 leaf, Kaiser pearls, Spellbinder Heart Circles die, sponge daubers, Prismacolor markers, Eclipse masking, SU 1-1/4" circle punch, Spellbinder Classic Circles die

The sentiment was computer generated and printed right onto the patterned paper.  This is a saying I've heard for years and find myself quoting from time to time!  
Do you ever feel that way????

Well I'm working on another altered project to share with you soon so I'd best get back to work.
Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks for all your kind words!  It's always nice to hear your work has inspired someone else!
