JUNE Challenge #23 Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt

Happy June!!! This month the book is Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt by Kate Messner.

Listen to it HERE on Youtube.

There's a guest designer this month!!!

Here's what Rosmarie said about her card.

I was rather drawn to flowers for this card. So I wasn't just inspired by the book cover, but also by my peonies. They are particularly beautiful this year, as are all the flowers and plants this spring. The long period of rain we've had has done them a world of good!
I only used design paper for the card. I cut out two different designs and stuck them onto a gel print made with Distress Inks. 
I added a strip of washi tape to the bottom left. The sentiment is a stamp from Stampin' Up.
I really enjoyed making this card :))

Thanks so much Rosmarie!!!

Here's my project.

My Friendship is Not a Big Thing... card can be found at Cricut Design Space.

Let the story theme, the cover, the layout of the cover, the color scheme (USUALLY not just one color, unless the story permits it!) inspire you to get creative!!!

Here are the Tops for Challenge #22!
