I just got my new "Scene in a Garden" from the Occas. Mini and "Branch Out" from the S/S catty. I knew as soon as I saw them that I just HAD to combine the sets. Everyday we have decent weather (no rain) I am outside doing spring gardening. Not only did I get to challenge myself to combine these sets, but I used this weeks Color Combo Challenge. Thanks Emily, love these colors together. I did cut off part of the lower legs and vase to get a shorter look. I used the pen end my Choc Chip marker on the edges and lines of the bench and pots and blended the color to the inside to get a lighter look. My blender pen was also used on the boots and vase. This card will go to a friend of mine who is still buried in snow. Hopefully this card brings her at least a day filled with spring.
How do you like my cute little bow? I punched 2 holes with the small cropadile hole punch. Threaded the ribbon thru and tied my bow just the way Latisha did on her cool Flourishes video. Do check it out.
Enjoy and TFL.......Happy Spring to all......

How cute is this card! And these two sets work so well together. I love the garden set, all the images are so neat. We used the tree set at our last meeting and it is soooooo tempting. I love the colors and your stamping layout, a lovely bow too. TFS

I have Branch Out and plan on getting the other stamp set with the intention of using them together. I love your card! Great implementation of both stamp sets!
