Guest Designer at Phindy's Place

     Last month I was blessed to have two of my cards chosen as Card of the Week at the Phindy's Place Challenge Blog AND to be asked to be a Guest Designer in July.  Thank you Phindy and DT ladies!!
     This is the card I created for my Guest Designer spot.  I've used the "Pretty Blooms" stamp from Phindy's Place and colored it with Copics according to the "Pretty Pastels" theme.
     My papers are from a new purchase, a Kaisercraft English Rose 6 x 6 paper pad.  I just love the soft vintage colors.  Soft blues, greens and pinks are my favorites to work with.
     It looks like Phindy's is going to be another folder in my digi library that is well stocked.  I really enjoyed working with this image and I have several others in my arsenal already that you'll be seeing (and have seen--Speedster is one of Phindy's and so is that sweet little bear with the carriage from a couple of weeks ago).  If you join in the challenges you just might win and be able to add a few of Phindy's images to your own stash of digis.
     Hope you like my little fashion plate gardener.  LOL
