A Garden is a Friend....

DSCF5650-2

Today's SCS Clean & Simple challenge is to use brads or eyelets on your card....I am not sure my card really qualifies as a CAS, but it's all my poor brain could come up with after an extremely stressful weekend...never so glad to see a Monday arrive!  So here we are:

DSCF5650-1

And see that fancy little watermark up in the corner?  A special friend made that for me this weekend!  The one highlight of my day!!!  Anyway, this is pretty basic:  Early Bird DP; CHF garden sentiment and a SU flower from Enjoy Every Moment, stamped in Pixie Pink on Confetti Cream.  Ribbon is retired SU; Build-a-Brad makes the flower center.  I have to admit that I do not like the flower off center, but I made it that way so it didn't come over to the side of the card too far.....I would have also preferred a whiter shade but the Early Bird paper is all cream-colored, so I went with the Confetti Cream.  Oh well, it is still kinda cute; Pumpkin thought so also:

Enjoy your day!

Like the build-a-brad flower center. Real cute.

Do you have to have special software to make your own watermark? I really like yours; I know you're excited about having a new one.
