Inspiration Just In My Backyard....

So a couple people asked me to post where my inspiration came from on my Hot Cocoa I mentioned, it was from my newly planted Rose Garden!!! So here is a quick snapshot of them roses......
So the whole purpose of this post, is to show you that you need not look further than your own backyard for inspiration when creating a card. One of my favorite aspects of my backyard are my Swedish Aspen trees. A few years back, I planted these and have enjoyed watching them quickly grow!!! But the most cherished thing about these trees is, on days when a gentle breeze blows through my yard, the little leaves make such a beautiful rustle, that is so relaxing and soothing!So without any further waiting, I have decided to show you what I made with Bouquet Bunch from the new Summer Mini Catalogue. I used the trunk stamp, and then stacked the leaf bunches three to a tree to create my own Swedish Aspens!
I then colored in the leaves with Pear Pizzaz and outlined them with Old Olive to achieve the depth in color of these beauties!
I also used Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Soft Suede & Pear Pizzaz in cardstock colors. A little stitching to add some punch, and some scraps of torn paper from the Elements Of Style Butterfly cards from a previous post rounded out this card.
Going with the same theme, I used Bouquet Bunch again to create this 3x5-1/2 card, planting the leaf bunches in pots this time. A simple card to say "I'm Sorry" for any time you need one...I find I need to make these in batches of 10 for my husband to give to me!!! Bwahahahaha!
Colors used here, were Crumb Cake & Marina Mist, Whisper White, Pear Pizzaz & Old Olive. The butterflies were from a retired set called "Branch Out" but were the perfect size for this little card, so I had to use them. Same coloring technique as the first card to create depth. Finished off with a little Hemp Twine and voila!!!
