Rubbernecker Stampin' Sisterhood Blog Hop - In the Garden!

Welcome to the May Rubbernecker Stampin' Sisterhood Design Team Blog hop -  given that we are in the middle of Spring - our theme is appropriately " Garden".

We are looking at my 'garden' from the inside of the house!  I inked the Spring Glory #610-01 stamp using Memento Dew Drop ink pads inking some flowers Cantaloupe, some Rose Bud and the stems in Bamboo Leaves.  I cut the stamping to fit behind the Grand Madison Window adhering the stamped panel to the window with foam tape. I sponged the edges of the window with Ranger Distress Scattered Straw to add a little dimension.  I added a little strip of lace for a curtain along the top and stamped the Get Well Soon sentiment from the Best Wishes Set #600 directly on the patterned paper.

I think looking out my window at this pretty garden would make  me feel a lot better!  How about you??
