Blue and Green with Envy

Hello everybody out there in blog land! Its been a beautiful day today after about 3 days of off and on  thunderstorms. The grass should be nice and green and overgrown by the end of the week at this rate, guess who's not cutting it! I'll give you a hint, IT'S ME! I'm NOT cutting it! lol In the spirtit of loving all things growing lush and green I am loving this week's DTT, now called Garden Variety Tuesday. Its a color challenge, which happens to be my favorite kind of challenge, using the colors blue and green! Without further ado, my entry:
 Garden Anya
I've been seeing 3d paper piecing popping up all over the place so I decided to give it a shot...NEVER again! ok I exaggerate maybe one day eventually possibly again but no time soon! This was a headache and I'm sure I was just overthinking everything but this was so difficult for me. pretty much every piece of Garden Anya was cut out and layered on top of another to give this (very slight : \ ) 3d effect. This literally took me hours to do and I'm not all that pleased with the way it turned out  but it was certainly a learning experience. Miss anya was colored with prisma color pencils on kraft cardstock and stickled with crystal stickles. The flowers were a free gift with my purchase from i am roses. In addition to the Garden Variety Tuesday challeng over at splendid stamping I also plan to enter this in the Simon Says... Flower Power! Challenge  . OMG I could do an entire blog entry about the awesome service, quick shipping/delivery, wonderful packaging and quality beautiful products they sell, this was my first of many more soon to come transactions with them and all I can say is WOW! be prepared to see many more flowers on my cards they have a customer for LIFE! If you're into flowers I highly recomend buying from them!
