ColourQ Challenge # 173 & Simon Says Stamp

 I paper pieced the gloves, pots,  pruning
 sheers  and the main image.

I loved the colours in this week ColourQ, I have not had a chance to play in a while , happy I got the chance today.

Thanks for telling me Joyce!

 I saw this card Garden Basket Jenny made and I thought I had the same stamp. Mine is  different, and of course I don't color as well, but I think it turned out nice anyway. This is another new die I bought, it's not modern or anything but something about it I just love. I guess I am just getting older . I enjoyed making this one and might make a few more to have on hand it was very relaxing coloring for a change. The gloves are paper pieced with patterned paper. The stamps are from yep…Serendipity Stamps , 
Paper from Papertrey Ink, and the dies are 
Spellbinders Majestic Elements

You have a chance to win 20$ off your order 

Happy Birthday is also from Serendipity Stamps

  1. This is such a pretty and serene card. All the details are really wonderful. I like how you colored the image, and those paper pieced gloves are great. You should enter this into the SSS paper piecing challenge.

  2. So beautiful!! love the dimension and your coloring!! Thanks so much for sharing it with us at the ColourQ!!

  3. Marybeth this is beautiful and your coloring divine! It's quite relaxing, just makes me think of lazy summer afternoons. And I love the polka dots gloves!

  4. Such a beautiful card Marybeth - it conjures up images of a warm Summer day, pottering around the garden. No chance of that here in the UK, as we have lots of snow right now!
    Gorgeous colouring and a very attractive pair of gardening gloves (great paper-piecing)! Oooh, and I do love the ornate Spellbinders - they are fabulous.
    Hugs, Sylvia xx
