SSCB#12 - Victory Garden

Twice a month Serendipity Stamps hosts a challenge at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog.  This is your chance to pull our your fave Serendipity Stamps and make something for your chance to win!  The challenge this time is called Victory Garden.   You are to make a project inspired by the garden using at least one Serendipity Stamps image or die.  The design team was given a little trickier challenge - to create something garden inspired but - No Flowers!  

I decided on the sundial image.  I colored it up with Copic Markers and layered it on some pretty paper from Websters Pages.

I hope you will check out the inspiration provided by the rest of the design team for this challenge.  Just click on their names below.

Want to go shopping?  Serendipity has a select group of wood mounted stamps on sale for 50% off while supplies last.  You can see them here.
