Zilker Botanical Garden

I'm using a paper that I've been hoarding forever - I love the color and the flower design it reminds me of dandelions.  The paper is in Set #3 from my Counterfeit Kit Challenge.  I originally picked up the paper because I wanted the pattern, but since I have a Cricut I cut my own so it's time to use it. 

So this last trip to Austin, Texas I drug DH to the Botanical Garden and ran him through my favorite parts - literally, we had about 20 minutes to kill and he has not seen it.  I used the Botany image from the Stampin' Up paper and matted it onto grey cardstock to bring in another element. My journaling card is behind it.   I again did a few of the banners and accented them with the rhinestones accents. 

The Koi in the corner is one that he was taking a picture of in the middle of the pond.  Our map that we picked up is in another sheet protector so that we can refer back to it in the future. 

Thanks for stopping by.
