Are you ready???

It's CHALLENGE time!!!

Theme: In the Garden
(anything you may find there - flowers, bugs, veggies, etc.)
Stash:  Ribbon

You have one week (July 7th) to get your projects posted.

Our sponsor this week is:

This week I used a digi stamp called "Flower Bird" from Bugaboo Stamps.  I chose this image because it looked like the little birdie had invaded the flower bed . . . reminded me of the little bunnies who have been helping themselves to my green beans, strawberries, etc. (but they have left the tomato transplants alone - go figure!).  I also used paper from PaperTemptress along with one (1) small strip of paper from "For the Record 2" 6x6 paper pad by Echo Park.  Here's how it turned out:

"Marigold" and "Seaweed" striped twine from The Twinery
misc. clear gems

Paper from PaperTemptress:

One thing I LOVE about the paper from PaperTemptress is the amazing colors and textures . . . but I usually have a hard time getting the shimmer of the Cryogen White Iridescent paper to show up in a pictures.  BUT I was able to get a few decent closeup pictures of all 4 papers to show you their texture and shimmer.

 Here's close-up of the Cryogen White Iridescent paper . . . can you see the 
shimmer on the bird?  It looks like maybe a glitter pens or a shimmery 
spray was used, but it was colored with regular Copics.  The shimmer is the 
PAPER . . . and it does NOT rub off!! 

Here's an even closer close-up of the Cryogen White Iridescent paper . . . this 
shows the shimmer on the background a bit better than the first close-up.

Here's close-up of both the Cryogen White Iridescent paper and the Gold (text 
weight) and Lagoon Mica/Metallic papers.  Don't you just LOVE the glittery/
shimmery look of the paper?  I know I do . . . and the BEST this is you
get the glittery/shimmer look with the mess!!  

And here is a close-up of the White Leather paper.  I just LOVE the feel
 of this paper . . . it really does have the feal of leather. .

For this next week, ALL paper at PaperTemptress is 30% off . . . YES, 30% off!!!  

Thus, making it an even better deal and a GREAT time to try out this AMAZING specialty cardstock and paper she has.  So head on over and check it out.

Remember, you have one week to get your projects entered into the "In the Garden" challenge over at Clear It Out Challenge.  I hope to see all of you join us this week!!!

Till the next time I'm up in the night.
