New Challenge at Joan's Gardens

(click on image to enlarge)

This week's #8 challenge at Joan's Gardens was great fun.  Of course, I was at Joan's last week attending her workshop so only now, after returning home, have I had the opportunity to join in the challenge fun.  Selma created an AMAZING card & technique (seen HERE) which is the basis of this week's challenge.  Here's the list of requirements:
■ Use Selma's new technique
■ Use a combination of colors
■ Use a tree
■ Use a flourish

The products I have used for my card are as follows:
  • White glossy paper, white cardstock, navy blue cardstock
  • Tim Holtz Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks
  • VersaMark Ink
  • Adirondack Metallics (gold)
  • Cheery Lynn Designs (B117) Fanciful Flourish die
  • Heartfelt Creations (3432) Magnificent Spruce Trees Stamps
  • Heartfelt Creations (3415) Petite Poinsettia Stamps
  • Gold, Red & Green Stickles
Items in BOLD print were purchased through Joan's Gardens.  I hope you will come join in the fun!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have found inspiration.

Other challenges this card qualifies for are:
Crafts & Me - Winter Blues
Make It Monday #61 - Anything Goes
Pollycraft Monday #117 - Anything Goes 
Come & Get It - Anything Goes
The Corrosive Challenge - Add a Fourish
