How does your garden grow?

How does your garden grow? Mine is coming along nicely! We are expected to have some frost tonight. I don't think my garden will have any problems though.
Here are some pictures of the flowers that have begun to bloom.


My roses are in full bloom as well!


I was inspired by my rose garden to create this card with one of my all time favorite stamp set, Wild Rose:


Ink: Cameo Coral, Groovy Guava, Old Olive
Paper: Whisper White, Cameo Coral
Accessories: White halfback pearls (Pretties Kit), Dimensionals
Technique: Masking, scoring, 2-step stamping

I used my black scoring blade to create a border on the layer of Cameo Coral card stock.

Happy stampin'!

Goodness!! The only thing I could possibly keep alive is your rose card, which is spectacular and such a good reflection of your real roses! How amazing to have such a garden!!! I'll be looking at these photos 600 times today.

How are you feeling, your head?

Wow, your roses are beautiful! I used to have a beautiful rose garden, and then ..... we pulled them for our kids playground area :(
We are not anywhere near rose bloom around here, but I am hoping to get a few going again this year!

Your flowers are beautiful, Jane! We've already had temps up to 100F, and all my spring flowers have died.
