Today I want to share a card I made that represents what I have been doing all week -- working in my flower garden and filling my patio pots.  My oldest daughter Malinda graduates from high school in a few short weeks and I am busy getting the yard and patio ready for her Open House party.  We have had beautiful weather, so I have been taking advantage of the lovely warm Spring days and getting ready for the party. 
I used Heartfelt Creations Broken Cinder Blocks image colored with Copics and then I used the Tattered Blossoms flowers stamp, which I then diecut with the Tattered Blossoms Die to create 3D flowers.  Also I used Art Glitter Tailings Elements for the flower centers and Art Glitter Redland Elements for the dirt in the flower pot.

I am entering my Garden Pots Card in the following challenge:

 I hope you are having good weather in your area and can get outside and enjoy it too!
