How does your garden grow?

This week at Shopping Our Stash, our host and fearless leader Alicia had selected the theme of  How does your garden grow?: Use anything that can be found in a garden... 

...so I used what I found in my stash!

Okay, this girl is adorable, but I just want to
clarify that that is in fact ribbon and
 not an old bra-strap binding the card! LOL!

Here's my second card:

OMG, how cute is she? I know this is pretty simple, but looking at this IRL, I just smiled and smiled!

Okay, let's see some projects, people!  Just think of the possibilities! Flowers, insects, fruits, veggies, a garden scene... I'm positive you all have some garden-related elements in your stashes!  Use 'em and join us this week!

As I embarked on my own stash-shopping trip, I considered making seed-packet holders, a decorated pot... even fairy-garden stuff! (You can pretty much do anything crafty with what you have on-hand... that's exactly what this challenge group is all about!)

Supplies and notes:
  • The stickers (jars, farm girls, flowers, labels) are from an October Afternoon 12x12 from 2012
  • The DP came from the same line... I think...
  • The banner on the first card was made from a scrap of Crate Paper that's always been "country" to me, though I don't think I bought it at the same time. 
  • The ribbon and button are both from my stash
  • I added Glossy Accents to the produce on the first card and to the jar on the second
  • I used all Viva pearls... these are my absolute fave liquid pearls. 
Have fun using your stash with us at SOS!
