TGF Summer Gardener Submissions

I decided that it's time to share the submissions I sent over to The Greeting Farm for the Summer Gardener DT call. All submissions had to use the colors orange and yellow. Of course I didn't have any DP with orange and yellow as the main colors, so a shopping trip was in order. I picked up some wonderful papers from Kaiser as well as the Lime Rickey papers from Basic Grey.

For this card, I actually colored two different images which are very similar with the main difference being the hair color ~ one blonde and one brunette (so if you see another card later on that looks familiar, that's why). I liked the blonde with these papers, but felt the brunette image just "popped" more so that's the one I went with.

I couldn't leave Ian out, so I had to make a boy card. It does look a bit plain, the more I look at it and probably should have added something more in the line of embellishments, but I just don't seem to have a lot of "boy" themed embellishments.....

And finally I had to ink up my new Hope and Grace set. Her skirt reminded me of an upside down flower, so I decided to color it in a graduated color. The scallop border around the oval is actually a bunch of circles layered on the back of the oval. The color of the flowers is a bit off in this picture, but I just could not get the lighting right for this picture no matter what I did.....hate when that happens. I love the look of the tiny rhinestones around the scalloped circle, but boy is this a chore with long nails, they kept wanting to stick underneath my nails.
