Spring Topiary

I am participating in the Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge SC472 and I am still wishing for warmer weather. I continue to delve into my garden and floral stamps to stave off the frigid temperatures outside. This card is so pretty with the pastel shades and it's a bonus that I made it with scraps. For some reason, I find it very gratifying to use up those small bits of paper scraps that I find difficult to throw away.
Another added bonus is that it also counts towards the 100 x 100 challenge as number 25 of 100 projects. Now I know it looks like I am behind on the challenge but I'm not. I am just a bit behind in posting. In the last few weeks, we have had a frozen water pipe (several times), we woke up to no heat on the first floor, on Saturday morning and there have been issues with our "upgraded internet service". Up to five times faster service turned into little or no service. The ISP service man came out yesterday and said things look fine and they have had some sevice issues. Another technician will be out soon to look at the line and I am hoping he can take care of the problem. Hence the reason I have not been able to upload video of my candy jar project! All in due time I guess. I digress and need to get back to this card.
I wish I could tell you about all of the papers that I used but I can't. The scraps don't have any identifying text on them. I do know that the pink paper is from SU! but I do not remember the name of it. The plain card stocks are from my original stash which came from a stationery store in northern Ohio and I have no idea who manufactured it. I have had it for thirteen or fourteen years. This was the time period where I only made cards for my garden club group and resisted the urge to scrapbook. Well we all know that didn't last!

 Here is what I do know:
Card Stock Base- Georgia Pacific
Embossing Folder- Cuttlebug 'Victoria'
Ribbon/Trim- Making Memories {note}worthy
Stamp- 2002 Anitas Sugarloaf Inc. 4872123685
Alcohol Markers- Spectrum Noir DG2, DG3, GB8, BG1, BG2, BG4, IG2, PP1, PP3, PP5
Clear Glitter Glue
Pop Dots

Have a great day!
