Thanks to Rita

This is a card that I made for Joan's Gardens Challenge but before I get in to that, I want to thank my friend and neighbor, Rita. Due to her, this card was made possible because I borrowed from her the die for the lattice, the stamp for the bird, and even the flower I think was punched with one of her punches.  I came across the punched flowers in a stash of precut flowers that I did some time ago and I think it was from a punch of Rita's.  The floral background was even from some scrap leftover from some cards we had made together for a club project.

Now back to the challenge. For Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge #31 we are to use a framed lattice background , any type of flowers , a  bird , and a vertical greeting.  I think I have all the elements covered.  Used 3 layers for flower which I embossed with Clear EP and stacked with pop up dots and used unknown Black Brad for center. My card is sized 5" x 7" to better use the lattice.

Stamps: Bird -All Night Media,  Vertical sentiment-Stampin' Up

Copics B0000,01, YR 00
Glaze Pens
Papers: White Glossy CS, Green Textured CS, Graphics 45 Scrap
Die: Cheery Lynn Lattice Die and Fanciful Flourish
Unknown punch for Flowers
Versamark and Clear EP, White EP

Thanks, Rita for making this card possible. If I win anything, I will share.
I enjoy every one's comments. Thank you.  Theresa

Lol, Betty! Theresa, this is so pretty! My poor old Cuttlebug just does not like to cut those kind of dies, anymore. The bird is a sweetie, and so is your friend for sharing.

Thanks for the heads up on the win. I was not sure how or when they announced winners.

I like your card very much - I wish you best on winning:) I have enjoyed learning how to make my own lattice as I do not have a die that cuts a nice lattice as used on your card. Have a great week.
