Tuesday Throwdown - In the Garden

Grab Our ButtonI made this one for the Tuesday Throwdown blog challenge.  This week's theme is "In the Garden".  I thought this image of raspberries from Serendipity was just the ticket.  I did lots and lots of layering with some paper I've been hoarding from K& Co.  Do you recognize this pattern?  This is one of the first paper's I ever bought.  I just adore the romantic garden flowers. and the soft pink color.  I always thought it was too pretty to use and didn't want to cover it up.  Well enough of that!  No more hanging clothes in the closet "for that special day" either!!    I think you know what I'm talking about here! 

I used lots of gold on this one, a gold pearl background, a gold foil paper ornate frame, and some gold twine too!

I hope you find some time today to play along - no better time to start thinking about "In the Garden" than Spring!

Love that gold frame and the die cut behind it really makes the frame stand out. The flowers are so pretty, colored perfectly as always. Your bow is so pretty and that button matches perfectly! I bet you have a ton of patterned paper and you saved this piece for the perfect card.
