What's the Dirt?!


I hope you have had a great time these last few days seeing the amazing creations of our talented design team using the most recently released Gina K Designs stamp sets!  Today we're sharing cards made with What's the Dirt?!  I love these casual garden images and fun sentiments!  They are great for those with green thumbs or those who wish they had 'em!  

Cat's release party challenge, to use a "found object" that you normally would not include on a card, is what inspired this project.  I used mustard seeds as the centers for these pretty flowers.


Notes:
Pure Luxury card stock
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink
Copic markers
Nestabilities classic circles large and small

Fabulous inspiration to follow:
