There's a new challenge up at SUO Challenges, and it's "featuring flowers".  It is a bit hard to narrow down the choices, when it comes to floral offerings from Stampin' Up!  I do, however, love flower stamps that have matching framelits, so I have used the Secret Garden bundle for this challenge.

 When making this card for my dear friend, I drew inspiration from a card (I'd seen a while ago) made by Jodi Collins.  Now that I've gone back to Jodi's blog, I can't for the life of me find the card that sparked this idea, but I feel I need to give her some credit!

Stamps: Secret Garden, Petite Pairs
Card: Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White
DSP: Naturals Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper
Ink: Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz stampin' pads, Jet Black Staz-On inkpad
Other: Secret Garden framelits, Neutrals and Subtles Candy Dots, Blender pen, Wisteria Wonder chevron ribbon, Tea Lace paper doilies, glue dots
