Gardens and Libraries

A beautiful quotation from Time Out - their challenge #159 - was the starting point for this card:

Then, happily, As You See It asked me for my favourite set of colours - a rainbow - as their challenge #223.
Working out the book was tricky (well, it was for me, 40 years after my last maths lesson!) - but after some false starts, here's the card: 

Ingredients: Stampin' Up! card (Whisper White, Kraft, Highland Heather, So Saffron, Rose Red, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi, Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquoise), stamps, (Butterfly Gala, Itty Bitty Greetings), Sending Flowers dies, Butterfly Duet punch.
Other: Memento Tuxedo Black inkm francheville rhinestones, Authentique 'Accomplished' DSP


  1. What a lovely flower garden bursting forth from that Happy Birthday book, Jo ... a fabulous scene, so beautifully detailed! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)

  2. What a lovely burst of colour, Jo. The black centres of the flowers are perfect - they unify the group and accentuate the brightness of the colours. As for your book - maths whizz!! Clever idea. Thanks for playing along with us at As You See It Challenge.

  3. What a fantastic, original design! I love the concept with the flowers popping up out of the book. So pretty and spring-like! Thanks for playing with us at Time Out Challenges!

  4. I love all the rainbow florals in your project, Jo! And I don't know how you managed to figure out how to create that book, but it works so well! Thanks for playing along with our Rainbow Challenge at As You See It Challenges!
