Joan's Gardens Challenge!
I can't believe this lady even had time to put together a challenge ... what with CHA, Shoe-Box Swap in Michigan & bringing Ruby (Mom) home to stay with them ... WOW . . . ( I think Joan is really Wonder Woman in disguise!! )
Anywhoooooo ... today's challenge is to create a card/project with the colors PURPLE & GREEN, use a strip of patterned paper and add a butterfly somewhere on your project. Here's what I came up with:
(click on image to enlarge)I LOVE Graphic 45 paper and since I'm also trying to use us scraps ... this 2-sided paper jumped right out of the bin! I carefully measured in order to have a big enough piece to cut the strip of grapes & leaves to use as my "strip of patterned paper".
(click on image to enlarge)I've added Crystal Effects to give the grapes a little "shine" and added purple Stickles to my Martha Stewart butterflies for even more sparkle. I didn't have the correct size rectangle Nestie to cut my sentiment panel, so I decided to use a stipple brush and swirl a couple different shades of purple ink around the outside edge.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have errands to run but guess where I've been for the past couple of hours ... you guessed it ... in the crafting cave!! What can I say ... I was having more fun there than I will fighting the crowds at the stores! Uuugh! Besides ... it's hot outside and it's quite comfortable down in the cave!! Oh well ... duty calls ... better 'Get 'r Done'!
Hugs to you all!
