Another fun Joan's Gardens Challenge

I could not wait to make my card for Joan's Gardens Challenge this week ... here are the deets:

  • Color -  Deep rich purple
  • Embellishment - a Spellbinders Pendant - or a punch making a design
  • Cut out flower that you color
  • Punched Border

My flowers are from Delicious Doodles ... I've colored them using Prismacolor markers, cut out with a Fiskars swivel knife and after adding a touch of Crystal Effects, have mounted using dimensional tape.

My background panels are cut from my new Spellbinder Labels 14 which were purchased at Joan's Gardens.  My organza ribbon is Offray and the border punched panel was created using the Martha Stewart Garden Trellis punch.

If you are new to Joan's Gardens and her challenges, please pop on over, check out her store and play along in her challenges which are posted each Thursday.

Thanks for stopping by!  Tomorrow is our grandson's birthday and I hope to have photos to share with you on Monday!  He's already "13" ... I can't believe it!!  Enjoy your weekend everyone!!

Hugs, Darlene
