So Excited by Diane Zechman

Hello AI friends!
Today is my first day to share a card with you!  As I was thinking about which stamps to use, I found this AI set called His & Hers Gardening which is exclusively sold in Michael's stores.  The sentiment was perfect for my first post today!  It reads "I'm so excited I wet my plants!"

I have to admit, though, that I am a terrible gardener!  I do not have a green thumb (unless I'm getting inky!)  LOL.
You can see below that I punched a decorative edge on the BACK of my card.  I thought I would take a few pics along the way to show you how easy it is to do.

Before I get to the card design, though, check out how cute the gardener is close up!  I paper pieced her apron to match the card.

And here is a side view showing the gardener, flower pots, and sentiment circle popped up.

Now here's a little picture tutorial to help you make the card base.  I forgot to mention that you should punch the corner first.


and finally...

You're done!

Thanks for stopping by...I hope you enjoyed my first card for AI!
