Paper Garden Projects 4th Friday Challenge

Today is a special day, not because it's "almost" the weekend....but it is the 4th Friday challenge at Paper Garden Projects.  We took a little break during the Summer and now the store is back and ready to kick off Autumn with a new challenge - create a Fall or Back To School creation. 

It can be any type of project: card, scrap page, altered item, gift pack - we want to see them all. The only rule is that you link up a project newly created for this challenge, although feel free to combine it with other current challenges.  Although we would love to see all the art you care to share, everyone will be entered in the prize drawing only once. One winner will be drawn randomly to win the prize. You have until midnight (EST) on Saturday, September 4th to link up your project to the  Paper Garden Projects Blog.

For your prize this month, I thought we could go on one last summer picnic. Maybe a birthday picnic with Penny Black? The prize is this super cute Hedgehog Birthday cling stamp:

Now for my project.  This month I got to play with the beautiful Petals From Scratch Stamp set available at Paper Garden Projects.  I also used the fabulous Kaisercraft Peachy Keen Paper Pad also available at PGP.

There is a field next to my house and this time of year the different Fall flowers are just amazing.  There are always butterflies everywhere.  So when I made my card, I had that field of flowers in mind.  I stamped my flowers in random areas, just like a field would be.  I added a sentiment (included in the stamp set).  The die cut tag is part of the 6x6 Kaisercraft paper pad.  I colored my image with Copics.  I also used the Copic Spica Clear Glitter Pen to add a little sparkle to my flowers - this is a must have for a crafter (available at PGP), it adds the perfect amout of glitter to your projects.

Can't wait to see your projects!!!
