Festive Friday Challenges - FF#104 - World Planting Day

It's time for another Festive Friday Challenge!  Every second Friday we post a challenge for you with a specific theme and an Inspo List of 10 items to choose from to create your project.  We encourage you to create a project based on the theme and Inspo List and then post it using at least 3 items from the inspiration list.

This week’s challenge FF #104 - World Planting Day

Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project and link up! #festivefridaychallenge  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. I hope you’ll make a card, scrapbook page or 3-D project and join us. You don’t need a blog to enter Festive Friday. Check out this link on how you can play along with this challenge. If you want help entering, please email me at stampinwithmelva@gmail.com and I’d be happy to help you!  

For my card I used the Flowering Rainboots Bundle from the Stampin' Up!® 2022 January to June Mini Catalog.  This bundle is so adorable.  It's been very rainy here lately so the Boots seem so appropriate!  I used flowers/plants, garden tools (watering can), wellington boots and bugs/insects for my card today.

  3. Cut Basic White card stock 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"
