A Barrow full of Flowers at Fred, She Said!

I know that there hasn't been very much rain in the country this summer-we here in Illinois are in the exceptional drought classification, which is the worst.  That being said, people have to really work hard at keeping the flowers blooming, not only because flowers give your spirit a boost but because the bees need the pollen to keep nature's cycle going!
By the driveway in my front yard, there's an old metal wheelbarrow that dear husband gussied up with some red paint and it's planted with flowers and greenery and puts a smile on my face every time I drive in.  Now the  flowers in Tracey's (aka Fred) pre-colored digital image found at the Fred, She Said Store look SO much better than mine do and I love this great strong blue color but it's great to know that if I wanted a different color on a card (to say match different paper), this image comes in 5 other colors!
I used some great MFT oval dies to achieve the 2 different oval cuts in this window card, added a stamp from Stampology and some heavy cotton lace.
Hope you all will take some time and get some enjoyment out of the summer flowers out there and thanks for stopping by~Carolyn
