I must say that there is a slight disadvantage to having bird feeders outside your window at 5:30 am!
With that said, I entered this challenge not knowing where I would go with it. In fact, I found myself staring into the pantry like one of my kids thinking "there is nothing in here!"
Then I saw the garlic and came up with the thought of tearing off the skins and using them as a flower.
These were first soaked in water otherwise they are very brittle. Then I painted them pink and set them aside to dry on a paper towel.
The bg is Baroque Motifs stamped twice, then I sponged the edges and added a few lines to, hopefully, give the paper a slight aged look to match the "paper" prima I had made. The center is a big round button. It actually has no garlic smell (kind of disappointted in that )I'm surprisingly happy with this considering just a half hour ago I was considering mashing cheerios for sand or something for lack of other supplies! Thanks so much for another great WT challenge and for helping stretch the mind!
Let me know what you think. TFL!

Oh, this is just marvelous. You have given me an idea. I have garlic growing in my garden AND onions in the pantry that like to lose skins. This is such a fun challenge and you have a wonderful card here. Pink garlic. Who'd a thunk!
