Peaceful Garden

I just love pink and green together!! This is a little more subdued than my retro flowers card from a few days ago!
I used the SU hostess set Springtime Stems for this one... first stamped the background colors for the flowers in coral and rose ink. I then embossed the large flowers with gold ep, and stamped someof the tulips with brown ink. The stems were done with old olive in.
I punched a Mega sized scalloped circle, distressed the edges, and embossed the harmony stamp with gold ep. Eyelets were punched in the sides and I threaded an polka dot organdy ribbon through the holes and wrapped it around. This layer is mounted on old olive.
I had some friends over for stamping time at the store today... did we have a great time!! We worked on coaster cards similar to my Basic Grey card I made last week. The card is posted in my Splitcoast Stampers Gallery . I had to make a quick trip tot he hardware store for some more hinges - luckily I found some with holes small enough for brads. I also glue my hinges to both the card an the coaster to make sure it doesn't move. I found some superglue with a little bush.... it looks almost like a nail polish container. This worked perfect of brushing on the hinge!
Thanks for looking and let me know what you think!!

Adorable! I love the colours you chose and I think the "harmony" symbol on the scalloped circle adds such a nice touch.

Very nice! I love the scallop punches although I don't have one yet it's definately on my want list. I love your choice of colors and adding the "asian" words to the scalloped circle adds just the right finishing touch to this card.
