Today we have sneaks of Italian Garden. Another make your mouth water and your senses go crazy stamp set.

This was a fun creation for me today. I used the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Rectangles for the frame part of the card. I then added folded paper to the back so you cant see the back. If that made sense at all? I was ahead of the game this time and I masked the tomatoes and centered them inside the Seeds of Freindship stamp set. Tomatoes were colored with copic collections Poppy and the leaves colored with Fields. Tied a bow with the celery gingham ribbon and tied off the middle with some red bakers twine with a Basic Grey Jovial Button. I love how this turned out, the sparkle once again is not showing but it is there.
