Happy Sunday my friends and I hope the sun is shining for you today!
I've been so busy that I've not had the opportunity to play along in one of my favorite challenges and that is the challenge over at Joan's Gardens. But I intend to remedy that with my creation for this week's challenge which is to:
- Use a leaf design for the background (die cut, embossed or stamped)
- Add purple flowers
- Use White, Green and Purple Colors
- Use A Sentiment
- You must use a product sold at Joan's Gardens.
I still need practice making this little roses but I didn't do too bad since it was my first time using these dies and it was 10:00 P.M. when I decided to make them! (Note to self ... try again after breakfast when you are fresh minded!) Either way ... I'm still very happy with the outcome of this card and hope you like it too!
Selma & Joan are always coming up with fabulous challenge ideas and that is one of the reasons why I enjoy this particular challenge so much! I typically end up doing something I've never tried before and that is due to Selma's amazing talents and inspiration! If you don't know who Selma Stevenson is, well you'll have to pop over to her blog Selma's Stamping Corner and check out her work ... it's fabulous!
Well I need to get moving ... we are headed over to Pennsylvania where we have our boat dry docked and have a gentleman interested in buying it. He is coming to take a closer look ... cross your fingers!!
