Thought I would enter this card in three different challenges...Die Cuttin' Diva's (gardening cut), The Paper Variety (tic tac toe...use 2+ flowers, spring colors and scallops) and CropStop (use lace, real or paper).

I thought the potted marigolds would work for gardening. The flowers are the marigolds and the ones on the background paper, the pastel colors for spring colors and scallops at the bottom. The "lace" is the blue swirls.

Finished Card: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Cardstock: White, Two Shades of  Green, Two Shades of Purple, Blue, Two Shades of Yellow and Patterned Paper.
