There are so many ways to be inspired by Ornate Gardens, but this week I'm looking at two pieces of the designer series paper. The paper is always a good place to begin as it provides a colour palette, often quite novel, to kick start creativity.
Lovely Lipstick is not one of the colours used in this paper, as it is due to retire at the end of May, and this Ornate Garden Suite is an early preview from the NEXT Annual Catalogue. I do like the Lovely Lipstick with this paper though. It has been diecut with the largest Ornate Frame. Last Tuesday, I used Lots Of Happy when I recorded a video, and I've used two stamps from that kit on this card too. Truth is, I've misplaced (temporarily, I hope) the small flower stamp from Ornate Style. I remember peeling it off the block and sticking it to something on my desk for safe-keeping, but can't remember exactly what, and it's missing. So sad...
Ornate Borders dies is bundled with Ornate Thanks for the 10% discount, while Ornate Layers dies is paired with Ornate Style for the same 10% discount. It's a mighty big suite, and there are several ways to buy it, and yes - it is available to customers NOW! There will be links following this blog, which will link you to my online shop, where you can browse to your hearts content.

Have you been inspired to share something? You don't need to own the Ornate Garden Suite to join in, just perhaps the colours, or florals. I look forward to seeing lots more inspiration on our Challenge page
