Hello! It is a cool and cloudy day in Florida so I took time to create a card for some challenges. Have you seen that Joan (former owner of Joan's Gardens) of Joan's Touch is having challenges on her blog? This week the new owner of Joan's Gardens is offering a prize. Check it out here.
This week Joan has asked us to use 3 flowers , vintage colors, something for texture like mesh or tulle, and a product sold at Joan's Gardens. I had all the elements covered but the mesh or tulle and then remembered that I had a bag of potatoes in mesh packaging and it was a perfect color as well. So I began my card. The flowers were made using Susan's Gardens Dogwood dies made by Sizzix that I received from Joan's Gardens. I used white and green cs for the Dogwood Flowers and shaped with flower tools by Susan's Gardens also from Joan's Gardens. I assembled the card with a base of GKD ivory cs , layered with floral pattern paper, then a layer of script pattern paper, pieces of mesh, the dogwoods with some of the mesh layered underneath. The patterns are all Graphics 45 Paper Pads. I finished the card with a coral Grosgrain ribbon highlighting the sentiment stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink on a rectangle from the Pattern Paper which was printed with the word Thoughts. The stamp from Flourishes Flowers for Jan Set reads "There is no charm equal to tenderness of the heart." I loved the way this card came together with the vintage colored pattern papers and the lovely words and the final touch of the colored pearls.
