Hey there friends! Happy April! Today I wanted to share a card that I created using Stampin’ up!’s Garden Wishes stamp set.

Now I’ll be honest with you right from the get-go, this is a stamp set that I would not have bought for myself. And the best way to describe why, is because it’s not really “me”.

I have never really liked Dandelions. Especially since every year I feel like I’m constantly fighting a losing battle to keep them from overtaking my lawn.

So if I don’t really like dandelions, then why do I have this stamp set? 

I won it at Stampin’ Up!’s Virtual On Stage Event.

So since I won it, I figured I should actually use it. 

And you know what? 

I REALLY like how this card turned out. 

Stampin’ Up! Canada | Wishing You All The Best Card

For this card I paired the Garden Wishes stamp set with the Dandy Garden 6″ x 6″ patterned paper collection. Both the coral and yellow strips of patterned paper come from that collection, as do the fussy cut dragonflies. 

I stepped up the card using ribbon, lace trim, sequins, rhinestones and wooden elements.  

Want to know how I did it all?

Gotta watch the tutorial to find out 😉. And for that, it means you need to be an email subscriber.
