In the Garden

Hello Fellow Crafters and Followers,

Sharing a second post today on a special card I made for a Cousin I have not seen in a while and have had her in my heart and prayers.  I saw this particular sweet image by Sherri Baldy/My Besties called Messy Bessy/IMG800.  Her sweet stance and cuteness reminded me of her.  Once I saw the Card Challenge over at My Bestie Spanish Challenge #2 with the THEME: In the Garden. I knew that was going to be my scene for Messy Bessy's background.
I designed my card to be an easel card overflowing with a nest of goodies you see in the garden.

I had bought a package of the miniature glittered nest with eggs last year after Christmas when they marked a lot of things 60 to 70% off so I knew I had to have them. Now I wish I would have bought more and are so precious in person. And my acetate die Bird sitting on a leaf is from a K & Company stash I have had for 3 years or so. Not to mention a big stash of bling I keep on hand. My extra mini-flowers are from my favorite on-line Flower Store The Rubber Buggy even though they sell all kinds of other goodies.
I hope you enjoyed my card overloaded with love and embellishments. I just hope she doesn't think...what is all this...I have never seen a card with all this stuff.  I even had to put a flower charm on it.  And what else do we do when we walk through a beautiful garden but... Dream...Wish...Love...Hope and Believe in the beauty that surrounds us. I thank the Lord for his colorful hand and creativity in the flowers blooming for us to enjoy.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges where I am also a Follower.
