Joan's Gardens Thursday Challenge #16




It is time for another Thursday Challenge at Joan's Gardens.  This week the challenge is to use shades of brown and tan; buttons; and three Nestie layers.

My card was made using the JustRite "Beautiful Blossoms" stamp set.  The designer paper is from Anna Griffin.   The image was stamped with brown ink on Kraft card stock.  I used bleach to lighten part of the petals and colored the rest with Copic markers.  I was trying duplicate the flower in the design paper.  The design was cut out with an oval Nestie and then two different size scallop Nestie ovals layered  below it.   Two bands were cut and layered.   The lighter one was sponged with Tim Holtz Distressed ink.  The smaller Nestie scalloped oval was also sponged with the same ink.  A Tim Holtz button was added to the design and three tan buttons added to the band over trim.  Webster's Pages trim was added to the top of the card.

Be sure to go over and check out all the information about this challenge at Joan's Gardens.  I'd love to see your card submitted.  Remember you have a chance to win a wonderful prize.  And the best part, each person who has been chosen by the random drawing for the weekly challenges, will be eligible to win the $100 gift certificate from Joan's Gardens.  The drawing for this big prize will be drawn at the end of the year.

Special Prayer Request:   If you follow Joan's blog, you know her mom's tumor has returned and they are having to make some really serious decisions on treatment.  This family needs your prayers.   Here is the last email I received from Joan: 
" We have decided we are taking mom to Bloomington Indiana (about 4 hours away) to have proton radiation.  I am not sure how I am working out the details, but we feel it is what needs to be done.  They will review her records to determine if she is a candidate for it. I pray she will be. So much to think about and get in order. I have such a busy October planned, so not sure how it is all going to work. I am just trusting the Lord to work out the details."

I know Joan and her family will greatly appreciate your prayers.

Love your card! But using brown is a challenge for me so I have to really think about this one. I'll keep Joan and her family in my Prayers. I live in Bloomington, IN and my husband actually works at the building for the proton therapy, although he works on the experimental side and not the medical side. Have a lovely weekend.
