Garden From The Heart Wiper Card

Another weekend creation. This is my first attempt at a wiper card (tutorial HERE at SCS). The finished size of this card is quite large, I was lucky to have an envelope to fit it. The other day a friend, Peggy, dropped by with some spare envelopes and there was one the perfect size in that box. Thanks Peggy!!!
I followed the tutorial and used that size then I added my own papers and embellishments. I loosely followed the Mojo Monday sketch for week 123 (link HERE). Here's my card:
and here's the card open:

and here is the back:

I made this with one of the new stamp sets available in the Occasions Mini catalogue - Garden From The Heart. I love this set, it's very versatile.
I stamped the hanging herbs in a continuing line (so much easier now that the stamps can be ordered in Clear Mount) at the tope of the white section. Both of the hats were stamped in Basic Black then coloured with Stampin' Write markers and cut out. The underneath one on the left is adhered flat on the WW piece, and the left hand one is popped up on dimensionals. I used some new Old Olive Satin Ribbon , a Filigree Brad, and a Black Brad for the embellishmet on the left. I threaded the ribbon through the Filigree Brad after attaching the black brad to it. The sentiment is also from the same set and is stamped in Basic Black. The bird is coloured with Bashful Blue and Brocade Blue, then I punched it out with the curly label punch. I wanted to highlight the frame a bit more, so I just used the side of the Black Marker and ran a thick line around it up to the fram that was stamped (I hope that makes sense to you!).
Here's the complete list of ingredients:
Stamps: Garden From The Heart, On Your Birthday, Pocket Silhouettes
Ink: Basic Black, Old Olive, Melon Mambo
Markers: Pale Plum, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Lavender Lace, Yoyo Yellow, Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue, Basic Black
Paper: Razzleberry Lemondade DSP
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black,
Other: Curly Label Punch, dimensionals, Filigree Brad, Black Brad, Old Olive Satin Ribbon
Thanks for looking, off now to have dinner with DH, then get some ideas for make-n-takes for my open house and a Home Based Business Fair I am invited to participate in..................
