Serendipity has a wonderful selection of Garden images.
This sweet Birdbath has been colored with Prismacolors. 

Stamping a portion of the image is a wonderful way to finish the inside of a card.

For my second card I have paired The Earth is the Lord's and the Daisy. I used two different colored inks for my stamping. After adding the Copics I went back and heat embossed over the stamped area with clear ep.
The die cut along the bottom is from the Heart Scroll Valance and Scalloped Border.
